This northern town in West Yorkshire is set among stunning scenery. It is a busy market town with museums and festivals to entertain and a proud history built on the many mills that once operated in the area. Organising car hire in Huddersfield will allow you to make the most of the wonderful scenery of the Peak District and wider area.
Huddersfield was the birth place of Harold Wilson, Labour Prime Minister of the 60s and 70s, and has a strong working class tradition...
The oldest attraction in town is the Castle Hill Monument dating back to the Iron Age. As a hill fort, it is one of the most important locations in the north of England and established the town as an important centre.
The mill industry grew up in Huddersfield during the Industrial Revolution. Wool was the major source of income, mainly due to the ample supply of fresh water needed for textile production.
The town has many buildings dating back to the success of the mill owners, with the railway station one of the most famous in Britain with its columned frontage and grand design. The Town Hall is also an impressive building to view.
Huddersfield has become a centre for the creative arts, with a vibrant art gallery and many unique shops selling art and handicrafts. The gallery includes works by Lowry and Henry Moore. There are also many arts festivals throughout the year. The largest is the Festival of Light, held each December, with theatre performances and street parades. Slightly more notorious is the fact that the town is the last place in the UK that the Sex Pistols gigged before their break up.
The town's parks are also well used and developed, with Beaumont Park offering gardens, woodlands and water cascades built in the Victorian style. Lying just outside the town, it can be easily reached with your rental car.
Leeds Bradford (LBA) and Manchester (MAN) airports are the nearest to the town, reached along the M62. You can pre-book your hire car to pick up at the airports or in downtown Huddersfield. To find the best price on car rental in Huddersfield, use TravelSupermarket's search tool to the left.
