The Markets of Huddersfield
Whatever you are looking for, you will find it in the Huddersfield markets. You have a choice of a few – Queensgate Market and the Open Market are the two most popular and for good reason. Queensgate has more than 100 stores with beauty salons, fish sellers and a playground for the little ones.
The Pure North Cider Press
Maybe you prefer a good pint of fresh cider over a glass of wine. If so, you can use the cider press to explore the orchard and make traditional cider on the spot. Because of its rural location (just outside Huddersfield, near Deanhouse), it is extremely popular with dog walkers and walkers – and nothing more fun than finishing a walk with a nice glass of cider made House.
