Guided Walk with Discover Huddersfield

About the event

We at Discover Huddersfield are excited to be able to offer a Guided Walks programme each year and hope that you will join us to experience some of the wondrous sites and heritage of Huddersfield town centre and surrounding areas.

Although, regrettably, we had to cancel the whole of our 2020 walks programme, we are now very pleased to be able to offer a number of walks starting in mid-July and continuing to late October this year.

Please note, however, that this programme remains subject to any further changes in Covid-19 restrictions and that all walks must be pre-booked on Eventbrite (see attached links) from approximately 2 weeks prior to the date of each walk.

It is also likely that the number of walkers will have to be limited according to the nature and timing of each walk.

Ticket prices will be £4.00 per walk (except Heritage Open Days events) and this includes the charge Eventbrite makes for its services.

*All walks must be pre-booked on Eventbrite.

Walks have different starting places. Walk titles are listed under Dates and Venues but please click on the link under Further Information for full details and to book.
