Halifaxpeople.com is a hub of information that consists of everything that Halifax has to offer as well as an insight into it's history.

Halifax is a historic market, mill and minster town in the metropolitan borough of Calderdale in West Yorkshire, England. It is the administrative centre of the borough. In the fifteenth century the town became an economic hub of the old West Riding of Yorkshire, primarily in woollen manufacture. From New Year's Day 1779 manufacturers and mercers dealt internationally in such articles through its grandiose square, the Piece Hall. Halifax is known for Mackintosh's chocolate and toffee products including Rolo and Quality Street. The Halifax Bank was founded and has large offices in the town. Dean Clough, one of the largest textile factories in the world at more than ¹⁄₂ mile long, is today a converted building for hotel, office and retail use including a gym, theatre, Travelodge and radio station, north of the town centre.


In 2019, Halifax went through a tourist boom and the main reason was the success of the TV drama - Gentleman Jack'. This led to many large crowds visiting Shibden Hall and other local landmarks. With the new season approaching, and depending on lockdowns, the tourists will hopefully be back shortly.
