Pitch your stamina against the Yorkshire Mill Mile - a stretch of stores including the UK’s largest retail mill, The Mill Batley; four floors of classically cool contemporary home furnishings at Redbrick Mill; and one of the UK’s largest and best open markets, boasting over 30 stalls, in Dewsbury.
Spread over three floors, and in the heart of Huddersfield town centre, Byram Arcade is home to local fashion designs, a comic shop and quirky arts and crafts. You’ll love the vintage finds here too, and at the Open Market in Brook Street.
Upmarket Sundays on the 2nd Sunday of every month has stalls selling handmade food, crafts and all sorts of other interesting things that you just can’t find amongst the high street. There’s a great range of independent shops in surrounding villages too including Lindley, Almondbury and Marsh. For a unique experience, get creative or purchase art at the West Yorkshire Print Workshop or North Light Gallery.
But, if the high street is the place for you, you’ll want to head to New Street, King Street and the Kingsgate Centre, where you’ll find chains including Next, H&M, House of Fraser and TopShop.
