Living in Huddersfield

Easy reach to rolling hills

It’s safe to say you’ll have a choice of outdoor options to make the most of your weekends in and around West Yorkshire. For those inclined to seek out vast stunning landscapes, this is the perfect spot to call home. Huddersfield is within day-trip reach of the Peak District National Park, the Yorkshire Dales, the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding National Beauty, and is in the foothills of the Pennines.

All of this being within easy reach might sound too good to be true (or difficult to access), but rest assured, it’s not. The advantage of excellent road infrastructure is that it’s not just there for commuting, but for your leisure too - all direct from your new home.

It’s not just rural areas you have access to either - you’ve got the buzz of city life on your doorstep. Located halfway between Leeds and Manchester, you’re in a prime location to get to major urban centres, without sacrificing West Yorkshire’s beauty. Your new home in Huddersfield would provide effortless connectivity to an extensive motorway network spanning the North, with easy access to the West (via M6 and M60) and the East (via M1) for work commutes or leisurely day trips.

Arts and leisure

Embracing Huddersfield opens doors to a diverse range of art and leisure. Whether you enjoy seeking solace in green spaces, exploring art exhibits or attending local sports fixtures, there’s certainly lots going on to help you settle into your new area.

Huddersfield has several beautiful parks and outdoor spaces (including Greenhead and Beaumont Park). There are annual events held throughout the year, including the Huddersfield Food and Drink Festival and the Huddersfield Literature Festival. It’s also where you’ll find the world-famous Huddersfield Choral Society, with a concert hall that provides the perfect backdrop for performances.

When it comes to sport, there’s Huddersfield Town Club (the first to win three consecutive English League titles). If you’re more into rugby, you’ll be glad to know it’s the proud home of rugby league. Residing here would provide the ideal opportunity to regularly cheer on the Huddersfield Giants, the town’s league team.
