Moving to Huddersfield
Are you considering moving to Huddersfield? The large market town has a lot going for it and it would be a big mistake to think it’s just another northern post-industrial town. It has a fabulous housing stock and great property prices. Ofsted reports are very good and the university is excellent, being especially strong in all the sciences but notably chemistry. All that and the Pennines just on your doorstep!
The train station will get you to Manchester in 40 minutes and Leeds in 25 minutes. There is also a direct service to Liverpool, Scarborough and York. The M62 swings comfortably close and the M1 is a 20-minute drive from the centre of town.
Property prices in Huddersfield

Huddersfield Grammar School
It has to be a pint and a pork pie at the excellent Rat and Ratchet at 40 Chapel Hill. It’s an absolute gem of a traditional no-nonsense alehouse, serving a fine selection of beer. They have a brewery downstairs and do various versions of ‘rat’ beers such as Blonde Rat, Ginger Rat and King Rat.
