    Dean Clough is a vibrant 22-acre mixed-use mill complex, stretching half a mile in length, on the edge of Halifax town centre. Once the home of Crossley Carpets, the world’s largest carpet manufacturer, it’s now a thriving community which combines arts and culture, leisure facilities, restaurants, bars, cafes, shops, event spaces, offices and a hotel.

    The site boasts an abundance of arts and culture with six galleries, a subterranean theatre (the Viaduct Theatre), two resident theatre companies (Northern Broadsides and IOU), a permanent art collection with over 300 original works on display, a dedicated arts mill and studios which are home to 25 artists and numerous art organisations.

    There is a fabulous array of local independent food and drink establishments, catering for a range of tastes with four restaurants, a gaming-themed bar and diner, a real ale pub, a coffee roastery and two cafes.

    In addition to a Jack Wills outlet store, the Prestige Flowers Gift Shop and the Design Shop, there are beauty salons, hairdressers, gyms and a karate dojo for those who like a workout!

    At the heart of the site is The Arches, a spectacularly stylish industrial venue, perfect for incredibly individual weddings and exclusive events. With a highly-experienced events team, The Arches is a much sought after venue for charity balls, proms, private parties and corporate events. The space is very versatile with formal dinners seating up to 300 people, with the added benefit of a Travelodge hotel on site for overnight stays.

    Across the year there are a variety of events which take place all across Dean Clough, whether in the restaurants, specific events spaces, the art galleries or in the artists’ studios. Recent events have included drive-in movies, art exhibitions, live music, life drawing, a bierkeller, lunch with Prue Leith and lots more. See the What’s On page on our website for current and future events.

    For families there is the Dean Clough Trail. This free trail takes approximately 1 hour to complete and the clues lead across the Dean Clough site (both inside and out). Those following the trail will get to see the huge Dean Clough Lego model and will be tested to see if they can walk along the old railway tracks, amongst many things. The trail leaflets are available from Main Reception in D Mill. 

    Visitors are welcome seven days a week and the public mills are open from 9am to 5pm (from 10am on a Sunday). Parking charges apply during the week (but not at weekends and after 6pm during the week). Otherwise, the site is 'free entry'.
