Here’s a date to put in your diary. From September 10-13, Hidden Gems of Halifax is back by popular demand.

Halifax Minster will showcase the town’s hidden marvels.

Starting at Halifax’s Town Hall, historians will unveil the truth about its jail and links with London’s Houses of Parliament.

The next haunt on the historical tour is to the town’s oldest public house which dates back to almost 500-years.

The town’s oldest surviving brick building, which dates back to 1730, will also be revealed on the tour suitable for all ages. More undiscovered architecture and hidden gems will be discovered before the tour discovers the mysterious Street in the Sky - where a bargain or tow can be purchased below.

The history and development of Halifax’s monumental Piece Hall.

The tour will culminate with a much deserved cup of tea or coffee at the Minster which was built in 1438 on the site of two former churches, the earliest dating back to Saxon times.
