A short walk through the park takes you into the heart of this very popular and historic town. This is a friendly town, residents are open-minded and relaxed, full of creative alternatives. Hebden Bridge was voted winner in Small Market Towns category of the Great British High Street awards (2016) and the fourth funkiest town in the world (2005) by British Airways*
The nearby National Trust woodland, Hardcastle Crags, contains many beautiful walking routes, a historic old mill, museum and cafe. On sunny days the town throngs with walkers, runners, cyclists, and buskers. Local tourists come to browse in its independent shops from traditional butchers and bakers to fair-trade goods and organic foods, bicycle and camping/outdoors shops, and small shops devoted to an eclectic range of vintage and handmade items. Its a testament to their popularity and the community spirit of the town that the majority survived the boxing day floods in 2016 and 2020 lockdown. There is an outdoor market every day between Thursday and Sunday with a rotating theme (farmer's market, flea market, crafts market etc.)
At night, the clubs and bars offer anything from the traditional Yorkshire pint to friendly micropubs, some with gastronomic delights and real local ales. Hebden Bridge is traditionally noted to be particularly good for music too, with the Trades club voted Music Week's Best Small Music venue in the UK 2015 (and shortlisted for NME Best Small Music Venue 2013 and 2014 ) and hosts live music and open mic nights aplenty.
Other attractions include the Handmade Parade, Burlesque festival, Folkroots festival, Hebden Bridge Arts festival, Vintage Car Rally, Happy Valley Pride Festival, Wuthering Bytes Festival, Steampunk weekend, Calderdale Beer and Cider Festival, and The Hebden Bridge Dance Festival.
Go for a walk up the hill and enter different worlds, pass through zones of woodland, patchwork fields lined with dry-stone walls and dotted with big old farmhouses, to the wild heather and bilberry-strewn moorland where you'll have your cobwebs blown away, maybe to the haunting sound of curlews. Then look back to fantastic far range views of distant hills, often bathed in a beautiful light.
How to get here:
