This used to be a great place to chill out and shop. Now, there is hardly anything there and nothing much happens. When i was younger it was full of quirky and interesting shops but now there's hardly anything open. It is so tragic as it is such an historic beauty. I think the council are to blame for destroying... More

Whilst working in Halifax, I really enjoyed nipping down to the Piece Hall for lunch. It's a nice spot to sit in the sun and read the paper. Could be improved by removing all the other people, but then again, what couldn't?

Whilst it is true that the peace hall in halifax is a very good place to relax on a hot summers day, it is far from great!!!! For too many year's the shop spaces have been shabby and the rent has been immensely over priced by the local council, (nothing more than greed!!!!) As a result the shop's that are... More

The Piece Hall is one of the best places to go and read a book in the summer or just hang out with friends when it's sunny. They have an excellent range of shops my favourite being Sweet Memories. The only issue I have is the events they put on during summer. In 2011 and 2012 they hosted Gay Pride... More

I visit the Piece Hall regularly being local. As far as history is concerned it is well worth a visit being the last complete remaining cloth hall in the area. There is a good visitor centre that hosts art exhibitions in the gallery (many local exhibitions) and the staff are well informed friendly and helpful and will tell you all... More

The Piece Hall is unique. It's architecture is stunning and the restoration which will close it for a year or more starting in January 2014 should result in a venue much better used than it has been of late.

If you want to visit the Piece Hall and see it in its glory then be quick. The Council are taking up the cobbles and paving it. This place could be a great gig venue and the shops could attract some great retailers but the greedy council have driven the old tenants away and now it is just a quiet... More

I wonder how I had never heard of the Piece Hall before! It's a bit like a big Italian piazza, but on a slope. As other reviewers have pointed out, it's not currently at its best, pending a complete refurbishment which will partly level the slope, re-opening within two years. It's quite unprepossessing on the outside; the Georgians forgot to... More
