Beauty spots around Calderdale have been put on the world stage for everyone see in the Last Tango in Halifax series.

The popular show, which is now in it’s third series, features Halifax, Sowerby Bridge, scenes from Holdsworth House hotel and restaurant, and much more.

Calderdale Council’s principal tourism officer, Katie Kinsella, said: “It is fantastic that Calderdale is the focus of such a hugely successful series.

“Raising Calderdale’s profile through film can have positive impacts on our economy, including potential job creation, local spending by filming companies and a boost in visitor numbers.

“Last Tango in Halifax showcases the borough to a national and international audience, as a result we receive lots of enquiries in our Halifax Visitor Information Centre about wanting to stay in Halifax and explore the area where the series is filmed.

“We are committed to encouraging the development of film and television production in Calderdale and are part of Creative England’s film friendly partnership.

“We receive lots of weird and wonderful requests for potential filming opportunities as a result.”
