Halifax, in the Borough of Calderdale, West Yorkshire is a minster town. The town became known for its manufacture of wool and textiles in the fifteenth century and was once the site of Dean Clough, one of the largest textile factories in the world at over half a mile long. Although this has now been redeveloped for office and retail use. Halifax is also known for Mackintosh's chocolate and toffee, which has now been bought out by Nestlé, Shibden Hall, and of course the Halifax building society.

Halifax has a wide variety of properties and therefore a wide spectrum of house prices. Being nestled between Leeds and Manchester - Halifax can offer a town centre modern apartment to a rural country Farmhouse with acres of land and with the M62 network running through the town this is an ideal location for commuters.

The Piece Hall is a building in the town centre originally built as a sales centre for woollen handloom weavers. It opened on 1 January 1779, with over 300 separate rooms arranged around a central courtyard. After a multi-million pound transformation it is now home to a number of independent shops, restaurants, galleries and bars. Hosting music concerts, markets and even launching sporting events, it  really has become the hub of Halifax.
