Things To Do In Halifax

If you're looking for a great family day out in Yorkshire, Halifax is a fantastic place to start. The town, situated close to Huddersfield and Leeds, offers plenty to do to suit all ages and interests, whatever the weather.

A fun way to get to grips with the town is by taking part in a treasure hunt with Huntfun. Your group will be provided with clues to decipher, taking you to different landmarks across Halifax. It's especially fun if you can split into a couple of smaller groups for a competitive edge.

For children who might be a little too young to appreciate being dragged around town, head to Eureka! The National Children's Museum, the UK's only fully interactive museum. With loads of hands-on things to explore, kids will have a great time learning about their bodies, the science of music and plenty more.

Another great option for kids can be found at Manor Heath Park and Jungle Experience. With 19 acres and plenty of nature to explore, it's sure to keep the family busy for a whole day.

There are also opportunities to get active and make the most of the great outdoors at both Ogden Water Country Park, a beautiful local nature reserve with woodland walks to enjoy, and Another World Adventure Centre. Here, visitors can have a go at a whole host of activities from archery and air rifling, to mountain boarding, skiing and paintballing.

For something more cultural, a great day out can be had at Halifax's local gem - Bankfield Museum. With exhibitions showing off local and international history, including toys, art and jewellery, it's a rainy-day option for all ages. Equally, Shibden Hall, a historic building constructed in 1420, boasts a range of fascinating displays inside, while outside you can enjoy pitch and putt, a boating lake and a miniature railway.
