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.

    We’ve been coming to the piece all on and off for years and it’s always been a bit underwhelming, it always felt like it could have more variety and be more of a venue than it actually was.

    This was the first visit to look round of ye shops after a few years and they had done all the refurbishments and I can happily say it’s finally met it’s potential, some lovely independent shops and businesses in a great setting. You can kill a few hours there easily.

    A beautiful place to see during this strange times. Christmas spirit is in the square. We feel safe as they observe covid measures. You only wear mask if you go inside enclosed shops. The jewel of Halifax. 😀

    Quite amazing. Especially since the modernisation. Lots of shops to browse and keeps the ‘trip down memory lane’ aesthetic.

    This is a special place! Just to sit in the square and have a coffee or do nothing just soak up the atmosphere. The upgrade to the Square is superb. The shops a delight. Lifts and loos handy.

    An absolute treasure of a place! A fantastic place to visit whether you’re local in Yorkshire or from elsewhere. It has been newly renovated and brought to life by the council and is absolutely beautiful. There are so many different little shops and bars to visit! Its a must visit. From sweet shops to Gin bars and libraries to emporiums. Everyone is so friendly.
