    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.

    Please note that the Museum will be closing to the public from 20th March until further notice.

    Representing over 300 years of the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment, since its raising in 1702, this museum tells the stories of the soldiers who served using their own words.

    The ‘Iron Duke’, Arthur Wellesley, was the Colonel of the 33rd which became, after his death, the only Regiment to be named after a person not of the Royal Blood.

    Displays include items relating to the Duke himself and to the rich and varied history of the regiment, including the campaigns of 33rd and 76th foot.

    The Duke of Wellington’s Regiment has a long association with the town of Halifax and its location within Bankfield Museum complements the wider history on display here.

    Eureka! The National Children’s Museum is an extraordinary fun-packed day out for families. We are the only fully interactive museum totally dedicated to children aged 0-11 anywhere in the UK.

    We open our doors to a changed world, and we’ve changed with it – but not so much that you won’t recognise us anymore, promise!

    We know you’ll have loads of questions so read our FAQs, there are a few really important changes that you need to know about:

    Nothing is behind a glass cabinet! We have over 400 interactive, hands-on exhibits designed to inspire enquiring minds to find out about themselves and the world around them. Discover 6 unique zones each with a different theme to explore. Make some noise and explore how music is created, experience the world of work and take over a child-sized town, and step inside giant body parts. Each zone is packed with equipment to explore, activities to do, and buttons to press. And with plenty of events throughout the year, from science experiments to interactive shows; it’s a different Eureka! experience every time.

    There’s a limited number of smaller areas we’ve kept closed for now, but all the main galleries and interactives are open. We’ve ramped up all our cleaning protocols and are even using a disinfectant “Fogging” system to ensure interactives can be played with. At this time our Creativity Space and the picnic train carriage remain closed.

    Pay once, and get in free for a year with an Annual Pass.
