Dominating the Huddersfield skyline, Castle Hill has been occupied since the Stone Age. The Victoria Tower was built in 1898/9 to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Victoria’s coronation. Visitors can take in panoramic views across Huddersfield and the surrounding countryside.
Located off Wakefield Road, Huddersfield just outside of the town centre, Aspley Basin is the terminus of the Huddersfield Broad Canal, a cruising waterway which links into the national network. What was once a hive of activity is now home to moorings and a popular canalside restaurant and pub.
