It also has renowned hospitality and catering facilities which can be used for events ranging from conferences to weddings.
Experience the highs and lows of West Yorkshire
There is much more to Huddersfield than just the John Smith's Stadium of course.

A tower built to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897 currently stands on the hill and is well worth a visit. Boating enthusiasts should also not miss a journey inside the Standedge Tunnel, the longest and deepest canal tunnel in Britain.
