Top Things to Do in Huddersfield
Stuck in the Riddle
Ok, we may be a little biased, but our very own Huddersfield Escape Room is one of the best ways you could spend some time in Huddersfield. Escape rooms are becoming ever more popular, and we have two lovely rooms for you to try. Why not try our Murder Mystery room, set in the study of Lord Farringdon, who has been murdered at his 1938 annual dinner party, or our Dungeon Escape Room, where you are struggling to free yourself and keep the throne from your evil cousin!
Why not visit the inspiration behind our dungeon escape room? Only a short trip of our Huddersfield town centre is the icon Victorian tower that commemorates the medieval fort that once stood on the hill. Accessible by car, Castle Hill gives a great view over Huddersfield, and is ideally for a picnic on a summers day! You can actually go inside the tower on a Saturday morning for a small fee.
This lesser known centre has plenty to do. With the record of being the longest, deepest and highest canal tunnel in the country, it draws a lot of visitors every year. As well as being able to take a trip into the tunnel, there’s also a visitors centre and cafe to stop by.
The Tolson Museum
Standing in the grounds of Ravensknowle Park, this museum is one of Huddersfield’s oldest. Displaying the history of Huddersfield, the museum is very informative, and a great place to visit… and it’s free!
The John Smith’s Stadium
Huddersfield has a long history of rugby (rugby league actually being created in Huddersfield town centre), so it would be a shame to not watch a game at the John Smith’s stadium. If rugby isn’t your thing, then the same stadium also hosts Huddersfield Town FC.
