The Lady at the front desk In the church was very helpful and informative and made us welcome, we were allowed to walk round at our leisure. The minster inside is very interesting, I wouldn't go as far as to say it is beautiful as some are indeed, but pleasant and peaceful.

It's Shut down. Don't come! It's being refurbished (if they ever get their acts in gear. Even then, I expect it to be the same sad, overpriced shops struggling to pay the local councils exhorbitant rents, and no where to park.

I understand the piece hall is going through major renovations at the moment and truly hope they get all the shops filled. In recent years I have seen shops close one by one as rent increases. I think the piece hall is a great place for young entrepreneurs or start out, so a low rent or incentive would really help... More

I visited on Saturday but could not get inside due to construction work. This is an amazing 18th Century cloth house and the plans and artist impressions look fantastic.With a huge open square, new retail shops and restaurants and lifts up to the balcony floors it is due to open in 2016 and will undoubtedly become a landmark must see...

Piece Hall has been closed for renovations, when open this is a great place to visit, little nic nac stalls on the balcony area, selling books and antiques. In the main arena there is a market at times and shops selling homemade goods. I remember in the 70's when this was a market selling goods, and as a child visiting... More

This beautiful building is the largest of the few remaining cloth halls in Britain and was saved from demolition in the 70's by one vote (thank God someone had sense). Over three floors (there is a lift) there are numerous individual units which, until last year, housed many independent shops. The enclosed square, part grass/ part cobbles, was the venue... More

I visited the Piece Hall with some enthusiasm as I now live in Halifax and visited it as a teenager many years ago. What a shame it's now only a shadow of it's former glory. Don't get me wrong, the history of it is still there, the place is clean and well kept with a small market taking place within,... More

I am Halifax born and bred although moved away thru work a while ago. Always love popping back into the piece hall for nostalgia. However.....it is not the place it once was. I have fond memories of spending the Saturdays of my youth in Halifax (late 80's). We always spent time in the piece hall. All the little shops on... More
