Brighouse occupies a prime position at the lower end of the Calder Valley, sitting alongside the Calder and Hebble Navigation waterway.
The town centre has a great choice of independent shops, restaurants and cafes for you to visit. These are supplemented by regular specialist markets, which take over the whole town centre, offering up to 80 food, drink and craft stalls.
Brighouse has gained a reputation for hosting and organising great festivals, such as the 1940’s weekend in June and the Brighouse Art Festival in October. These run alongside the speciality markets, Christmas Fairs and a Charity Gala.
Brighouse is home to Rokt Climbing Gym, the largest indoor climbing gym in Yorkshire, with its towering ROKTFACE outdoor climbing wall; higher than both the Tower of London and the Angel of the North!
If you would like to explore the area by walking, The Calderdale Way, a 50-mile circular walking route exploring the hills, moors and valleys of Calderdale; passes through the town.
