Why Move to Huddersfield?
Offering a relatively low cost of living, Huddersfield is a powerhouse of a town and well worth relocating to. With a population of just over 163,000 people it’s the 11th biggest town in the UK, meaning there is plenty to do.
There has been a settlement in the area for over 4,000 years, the remains of a Roman fort were unearthed in the mid-18th century near Outlane.
Woollen and cloth goods made in one of the 300 mills were once exported around the world making Huddersfield one of the wealthiest towns in the UK during the Victorian era.
Tanks to these industrial roots, the diverse and attractive town is home to some stunning Victorian architecture and boasts around 3,000 listed buildings. Many of the older properties of this era have now been renovated into posh apartments or large family homes.
Sitting just 15 minutes from Leeds, 30 minutes from Manchester and a little over an hour from Sheffield, Huddersfield is extremely convenient for easy travel by both road or rail.
Described as the “backbone of England”, the wild and wonderful Pennines are literally on the town’s doorstep. The Pennine route passes through three national parks; The Peak District, the Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland and is traversed by as many as 250,000 walkers annually.
Huddersfield has a varied cultural scene and a lively nightlife, including a wide range of bars and nightclubs, coffee shops and restaurants. The town is also a thriving centre for craft beer and real ale, with many independent breweries and pubs.
