Halifax Piece Hall

The Halifax Piece Hall is a Grade I listed building in Halifax, less than 15 minutes away from Brighouse. It was built in 1779 as a cloth hall for handloom weavers to sell the woollen cloth “pieces” they had produced.

After a multi million pound restoration in 2017, the Piece Hall now hosts music concerts and a variety of small, independent shops from West Yorkshire.

    Superb space and building, it's hard to imagine that such a place exists in UK, it looks like Italy. When the weather is good it's fantastic to stroll around, perusing the shops, bars, and cafes. There's not a huge number of shops but it's pretty varied and there's something that should interest kids and adults alike. There are lifts and plenty of toilets. There are many events held regularly here, the other nice thing is that there are plenty of car parks nearby, and the surrounding streets with borough market, and numerous arcades nearby make for an interesting day out. Highly recommended.

    Today, after my daughter finished her dance class, we drove to this small town that I really like, especially the piece Hall this Building where you can enjoy the tranquility and the beautiful buildings. I sat with the kids on a bench, enjoying this leisure time. As the evening approached, my daughter wanted to buy a gift for a friend, so we went to a soap store to pick a small present. Then we bought some take-out sushi before heading back to Manchester. I really enjoy taking the kids to some of the surrounding small towns to enjoy my weekends

    The Piece Hall is one of a kind building that you would find in the UK let alone here in the north. You would think you are in Italy! It a beautiful place where you will find independent shops as well as cafes and similar places. Various events take place in the square at different times of the year. Also filming such as by Marvel have taken pace here. It is a great place to visit on a family day out. Free to enter unless you’re attending a concert or special event taking place there. Look out for the handprint on one of entrances! There a few other attractions in Halifax to be seen and that itinerary should include the hall. It is fairly easy to find parking in Halifax.

    A great place to visit. Car parking lots are surrounding the site with reasonable prices. Entering the hall, two aesthetically sophisticated doors come into your sight. Passing that, a spacious square will be embracing you with sunlight and breezes. On ground floors, you get various selections of places to eat and drink. However, some of the restaurants require booking in advance (such as Astronomer). We had amazing Chicken/chorizo sandwiches and soup of day at the Bakery. From first floor upwards, there are lots of stores covering jewellery, vintage shops, book stores handmade souvenirs etc. There are toilets at two corners but not a lot for women. It is also kid and dog friendly as well. Overall, we spent the whole afternoon there and it was really worth it.
