    This splendid Grade II* listed Victorian market hall was voted the best in Britain in 2008. Come and enjoy the hustle, bustle and traditional splendour of a thriving retail market with a warm and friendly atmosphere. The impressive and historic Halifax Borough Market was built between 1891 and 1896 and was officially opened by the Duke and Duchess of York (later King George V and Queen Mary). As a first time visitor to this award-winning market, you could be forgiven for thinking that you had stumbled on to the set of a period TV drama. Decor and atmosphere combine to create a shopping experience that just can't be matched by mundane and soulless out-of-town supermarkets. Alongside the outstanding traditional family butchers and fruit and vegetable stalls which have passed down through generations, are the new stall holders tempting our taste buds with a bounty of exotic produce from the continent. Nor will the markets's fishmongers disappoint. You can treat your inner child with toffees, fudge, boiled sweets, cakes and brandy snaps. Sandwiches, pies, olives and chorizo can be found alongside haberdashers, vibrant flower shops, perfumers, leather goods, books, underwear, CDs, DVDs, hardware, fancy dress and more! With several cafes and coffee shops where you can stop for cuppa and a butty (go on, have cake too) you can easily refuel to carry on shopping. From the exotic to the native, extravagant to inexpensive, the quality of produce on offer remains unsurpassed. The traditional splendour of Halifax Borough Market offers a real destination shopping experience. Open Monday to Saturday 9am - 5pm.

    On Saturday September 14th between Noon and 4pm you have a rare opportunity to see a memorial to Ann Walker, lover of Anne ‘Gentleman Jack’ Lister, which has been locked within Lightcliffe Tower at Lightcliffe Cemetery near Halifax since 1974. There will be guides on hand to direct visitors to the most interesting and important graves connected with the Walker family. Ann Walker died at Cliffe Hill in 1854 and was buried under the pulpit at Old St Matthew’s church, Lightcliffe, Halifax. When the church was demolished in 1974, the charity Friends of Friendless Churches rescued the monuments and memorials and kept them safe within the residual tower, which is now in the charity’s care. Amongst the monuments is the Gothic style plaque remembering Ann Walker. As a part of the Heritage Open Days festival this September, the Friends of Friendless Churches are re-opening the base of the tower to allow visitors to view and pay their respects at Ann’s memorial. This is a free event, but donations towards the upkeep of the tower are gratefully received. There is no need to book.

    11am - 4pm A rare chance to peek behind the scenes of this beautiful Grade II* listed Georgian building. During its lifetime, Hope Hall, once known as Hope House, had many notable residents, including Christopher Rawson, who moved there in 1808 following his marriage to Mary Ann Brooks. As a Lieutenant in the service of the East India Company, Rawson had a distinguished career at sea and was offered a knighthood by George III, which he turned down, believing that he was not in a position to maintain such a status. He returned to Halifax to join the family banking business in Royds House (now known as Somerset House). At that time, he worked closely with Anne 'Gentleman Jack' Lister on political business. Anne’s visits to Hope Hall are referenced in her Journal. Rawson lived in Hope Hall until his death in 1849. Other notable residents include Halifax MP Sir Henry Edwards. He was followed by Samuel Waterhouse, a former Mayor of Halifax who donated land on Harrison Road, where the Bluecoats School and Alms-houses were built.
