Huddersfield is in a great location, with easy access to the cities of Manchester, Leeds, and Liverpool. It is surrounded by the Pennines and there is an abundance of excellent walking trails and beauty spots. There are a lot of independent bars and shops in the town center, although the bottom end of the town is dominated by a large shopping mall.

Prior to moving to Huddersfield, my family lived in Watford, Hertfordshire in the heart of the city. Huddersfield is very similar but with great open Countryside on its borders. It is on the Eastern edge of the Pennines and very near the Yorkshire Dales and the Derbyshire Peak District.

Huddersfield is a historic part of West Yorkshire which is eye catching due to its facilities and location. The splendid views of Emley Moor to the bustle of the town centre to the famous Last Of The Summer Wine scenery in nearby Holmfirth, Huddersfield has lots offer for students and tourists. Its Victorian-age buildings still stand and the university shows the town stepping out of the shadows. The railway station in St George’s Square in the middle of the town was described by Sir John as ‘the most splendid station fa├žade in England’.

Huddersfield is also an amazing place for commuters. The M62 and M1 motorways are really close to Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield. There are plenty of regular trains to London and Scotland. It is also easy to go to the airports at Manchester and Leeds.

In Huddersfield it rains almost daily. The town centre is in the middle of a valley and the surrounding villages are all situated uphill. This means that if you decide to visit somewhere on foot you should prepare for a tiring, steep inclined walk. Otherwise, Huddersfield is a lovely place and residents are, on the whole, happy here.
