Trains to Halifax

Trains to Halifax drift through enchanting West Yorkshire woodland before arriving at this charming countryside station. Once you depart your carriage, take a moment to look out from the platform and admire the 15th-century spires of Halifax Minster, a short walk from the station. Just a hint of the Georgian and Victorian architecture that awaits. Also nearby is Eureka! The National Children's Museum, an interactive educational museum with a focus on play-based learning. The current Halifax station opened in 1855. At that time, Halifax was considered the hub of England's wool industry, but nowadays the town is a retail paradise with the aptly named Woolshops Shopping Centre right in the middle of town, along with Halifax Borough Market and Dean Clough, a business community with a host of unique galleries and shops. The family-run department store, Harveys of Halifax, is a local institution.
