So, Huddersfield has it all – a great centre, close proximity to amazing countryside, loads to do and over 30 venues to choose from.
The Old Golf House Hotel, Bagden Hall and Dalton Grange are fine examples of Yorkshire’s grand homes, with wonderful conference, banqueting and hospitality facilities.
