Halifax is located in the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale, in West Yorkshire. Since the 15th century this town has been the center of woolen manufacturing, however these days it is now known for Mackintosh’s chocolate and toffee products, which includes household names such as Rolo and Quality Street.
Halifax offers more than just its heritage, cornering the south-eastern side of the South Pennines. This landscape offers its residents a chance to wander the moors, explore the country and take a break from the hustle and bustle of city life.

From the Ogden Water Country Park and Nature reserve, to the industrial museums and art galleries that surround the local area, it offers everything from outdoor scenic views to cultural expeditions for the family.
