About Huddersfield

Situated in West Yorkshire, with a population of over 160,000 and famous for being the home of rugby league is the city of Huddersfield. The city itself has a wide range of Victorian architecture in the town centre, including the spectacular Huddersfield Train Station.

Rugby fans will love the sport on offer but there is much more to see in the city including Castle Hill, Greenhead Park and the Tolson Memorial Museum. Huddersfield sits almost perfectly between Leeds, Manchester and Sheffield so there is lots of exploring to be done.

And for those looking for some outdoor adventure the famous Peak District sits just to the south and is within easy reach by car or bus.

A popular location for student housing and sitting just south of the city centre and the University buildings is the area of Ashenhurst.
