Railway Station & St George's Square
Huddersfield Railway Station won praise for its neoclassical architectural facade. The station was designed by James Piggott Pritchett and was built in 1850. There are two pubs at the station, 'The Head of Steam' and 'The King's Head' which can be accessed from platform 1.
St George's Square
Built in 1859 following the opening of the railway station. It was recently refurbished in 2009. The square is pedestranised with fountains and there is a statue of Harold Wilson, a former politician and prime minister who was born in the town.

Huddersfield Open Market
This market is open at weekends. I went in for a look - not much really, the usual junk of old vinyl records, pictures, books, clothes not even your gran would wear, but it killed half an hour anyway :)
- Road Trip
These were taken from the train as we were passing through West Yorkshire.
If you like peace and quiet and the chance to take long walks in the countryside, then you might just like it here.
