Rex Cinema

Reviewed By marymary27 - Scarborough, United Kingdom

This old cinema has been renovated, but has not lost any of its character. The seats are extremely comfortable too. There is a small display of old projectors, and photographs through the years. The ticket kiosk sells popcorn at very reasonable prices, also hot and cold drinks, chocolate bars etc. The staff are very helpful.

Reviewed By George S - Halifax, United Kingdom

Quite a nice 15th century Grade II listed building about one mile from Halifax centre. Set in a fairly large park with a boating lake, children's play area and a small train. The house is well furnished with a wide range of pieces from different periods At £5 (concessions £4) entrance it is a bit expensive, but makes for a good outing on a warm day. Combine with a visit to Piece Hall and/or Eureka! for a full day out.

New Hall Therapies

New Hall Therapies is a small independent spa. Every moment of your time here is about you. Working on an individual basis, we don’t have a team of therapists, there is no noisy salon environment, phones ringing or chatter. I don't cram lots of appointments into the diary. You don’t have to worry about parking, there is ample, free space. It's just peace and quiet…and time, just for you. We offer treatments to help you feel good from the inside out and to encourage your body’s own self-healing responses. Influenced by Eastern philosophies, but adding in our own style, we are about holistic relaxation. From a rustically styled and calming summerhouse therapy room within the garden of our home, New Hall Therapies is continually growing and evolving. We are now are delighted to have an outdoor hydrotherapy pool and are able to offer small group "mini-retreat” packages - a chance to reconnect and enjoy with someone you want to spend more time with.

I have just come back from a wonderful hour and a half treatment, my first with Joy. I chose the bespoke treatment opting for the hot stones massage, Indian head massage and facial and all three treatments were amazing. I relaxed more and more with each treatment and think I may even have drifted off for a bit. Joy was very welcoming and her new treatment room provided the perfect environment for relaxation. My first visit but it won't be my last.

Shibden Park

Reviewed By Em5ley - Huddersfield, United Kingdom

Visited today for the first time with our baby and we really enjoyed it. It was very cold but we were wrapped up and definitely needed it! Lovely open park space with outdoor children’s play area, good sized boating lake, pitch and putt and a miniature railway (in season).
Lots of ducks and swans on the pond, and bags of bird food can be purchased in the cafe.
We stopped off for a cuppa by the lake and ended up having lunch. It was really good value for money and nice food. Clean and spacious Seating area with good toilet facilities with baby change.
Didn’t visit the main Hall at the top of the park but we will be going back in the better weather with a picnic and doing this next time.
The paths around the park are suitable for pushchairs/wheelchairs and are mostly mud free but the path down to the park from the car park is quite steep. However it is till accessible you just need to be careful.

Would have given 5 stars but it was very cold in there today. I was only spotting and not climbing so felt it a bit more. Our 2 young children aged 4 and 6 really enjoyed themselves, previously we've only been in the kids attic but now they're a bit more confident we tried some of the bigger walls. It now costs £6 each which is really good value, we spent about 2 hours there.

Greenhead Park

Reviewed By englishgeorge - Huddersfield, United Kingdom

If you enjoy activities, nature or just plain people watching there is something for every one. We love watching the ducks /birds as they certainly lift the spirites. Signs of spring are everywhere if you just take time to look. The group of gardeners are brilliant. They not only care for the park but will tell you how to look after the plants and they certainly have given me a lot of help to use in my garden. Many groups with a wide variety of interests meet up in the park so there is plenty to observe and be inspired by.
