Welcome to our Halifax People hub. This is a website designed as a central information site for the people of Halifax. It is also split into villages and areas too for a more local touch.


Halifax is going through a tourist boom at the moment and the main reason is the recent success of the TV drama - Gentleman Jack'. This has led to many large crowds visiting Shibden Hall and other local landmarks. Long may it continue.
