Want to go walking, cycling, mountain biking or horse riding in the area? You've come to the right place! We have lots of routes for all ages and abilities, from a quiet stroll along the canal towpath, to a bike ride that will test your endurance and provide a few white knuckle moments. The Pennines are wild and wonderful, a land of steep-sided valleys, heather-covered moorland, canals, reservoirs and packhorse trails. The people who live here describe it as 'spectacular', 'inspiring', 'breathtaking' and 'dramatic.' It's a place where you'll find intense local pride - people who are passionate about the area and want to share what they know. Cyclists and mountain bikers are spoiled for choice too: two national cycle routes come our way, whilst there's ample opportunity for off-road adventure on the Pennine moorland bridleways. Belle Vue Barn offers a fantastic opportunity to bring your own horse and enjoy some of the routes once trodden by packhorse trains, carrying cloth across the Pennine moors. The first long-distance trail designed for riders, the Pennine Bridleway National Trail is becoming one of the most well-known horse riding trails in the UK. Threading through the Pennine hills, it combines historic packhorse routes with specially created paths. The Pennine Bridleway and the Mary Townley Loop give the opportunity for long distance rides for the fitter horse and rider. We have three E.V. (Electric Vehicle) charge points installed at Belle Vue Barn; two Tesla vehicle charge points and one Universal. They are all 7KW points and classed as 'fast' charge points by Tesla. The chargers will charge all EVs, type 1 and type 2 and useage is free to customers renting Belle Vue Barn.

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.

You’ll be at the pillared entrance to the Hardcastle Crags estate with its wooded valley unfolding before you.

There’s also a former mill at its heart which is now a visitor centre. And if you have dogs, there’s no need to leave them behind as The Lodge can cater for two pups. I’m sure they’ll love a snuggle by the log-burner after a long day of walking. The superb50 mile walking route The Calderdale Way, which circles the borough, runs closely past the Lodge. From here, the market town of Hebden Bridge is only two miles away and the city of Halifax is just 10 miles to the east.

Ted Hughes (1930-1998) was born at 1 Aspinall Street, Mytholmroyd, on the 17th August 1930. He lived there until he was seven, when his family moved to Mexborough. During his childhood he spent many hours exploring the countryside around Mytholmroyd, and these experiences and the influences of the landscape on him were to inform much of his later poetry.
One of the greatest poets of his generation, Hughes also wrote stories, plays, reviews and essays. He translated the work of, amongst others, Ovid, Racine, Aeschylus and Euripides. He wrote extensively for children, including the story The Iron Man, which was turned into the Disney blockbuster The Iron Giant. Hughes's interests in other art forms led to many collaborations, most famously with the artist Leonard Baskin.
Although best known in the UK, Hughes was a writer of international standing. He won numerous awards throughout his career, including four for his final collection, Birthday Letters. Hughes became Poet Laureate in 1984 until his death on 28th October 1998.

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.
