The Piece Hall is currently undergoing a major renovation programme and is surrounded by scaffolding and boards so is not accessible or visible. It is due to re open in 2016 so keep an eye on the website. It is destined to be a prime visitor attraction so should be well worth a visit when renovations are completed.

This is a beautiful building with lots of interesting and unique shops. Building works have been a problem but well worth a visit. Near to the ralway station and car parks it is handy for all travelers but the cobbles can be a bit of a problem. Walk around the covered area and then stand in the middle for a... More

I was delighted to see that work is in full swing and hope that when I come back to Halifax next year I will be able to get in and really see this wonderful place. I was also delighted to learn that the Halifax Library & Archive is going to be installed between Piece Hall and the Square Church.

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...
