The Piece Hall
The Piece Hall, located in the centre of Halifax, between the main shopping centre and Eureka! The National Children's Museum, is a Grade one Listed Building.
It consists of a large courtyard, surrounded by galleries in the classical style on three levels.
As a town square it compares well with any other in Europe and is a monument to both the woollen textile and stone masonry industries.
It has been seen in many documentaries, feature films and TV productions, including the much praised 'Brassed Off'.
Piers Gough and Adam Hart-Davis have both focused TV documentaries on the architectural and heritage importance of the Piece Hall.
Over the years the Piece Hall has become home to a wide range of speciality shops, see the The Piece Hall Halifax| , has developed into a very popular and well-respected exhibition space and the events programme brings thousands of visitors to see a great variety of entertainment in this glorious setting.
The Mill offers community spaces and exciting activities for pre-booked groups. Halifax Visitor Centre and Art Gallery is here too, and the Cappuccino Café provides quality food and drink.
There are also occasional Sunday specialty markets and Christmas events.
The Piece Hall's spacious courtyard has direct access from the three entrances and all ground floor shops, though visitors are advised to take care as the cobblestone square can be uneven in places.
There is a lift to all floors and this can be found next to Millie Moo's Paint a Pot Café (Ground Floor - South East corner). Disabled toilet facilities are available inside the Piece Hall. The shops (see the The Piece Hall Halifax| ) and café are all easily accessible. For further information on access at the Piece Hall, visit Disabled Go: Piece Hall|
An audio guide, to enhance your visit, is available from the Halifax Visitor Centre and Art Gallery, and can be borrowed along with Personal stereo equipment.
