Included Excursions

Halifax Piece Hall & Shibden Hall & Park(full day)
Today we first visit Piece Hall in Halifax, the unique 18th-century cloth halls building, which was the focal point for the woven textiles trade industry. This impressive and prestigious building is a sight to behold and don’t miss the statue of Anne Lister in the courtyard, which was unveiled by the television series creator Sally Wainwright and lead actress Suranne Jones.

Afterwards, we make our way to Anne Lister’s former home, Shibden Hall. Here we can explore the Hall, recognisable from the TV series, which was partly filmed there. Shibden Hall is a mile from Halifax town centre, surrounded by beautiful gardens and an impressive estate that forms Shibden Park. There is much to see and remember - At Shibden Hall she had them all

Salts Mill, Saltaire & Keighley Worth Valley Railway (full day)
We begin our day visiting Saltaire village, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the home of Salts Mill, which was turned into a street scene, including a pub and a chemist for the Gentleman Jack television series. Salts Mill was a huge undertaking, at its peak turning out 18 miles of cloth a day on 1200 looms, the name is due to the textile magnate, Sit Titus Salt, who opened the mill in 1853.

Next, we travel to Keighley, for a delightful journey on the Keighley Worth Valley Railway, a unique five-mile branch line in the heart of Yorskhire. Sit back and relax while taking in the delightful views on our journey to Haworth.
