  • This is well worthwhile visiting if in the area- with ample car parking, and a bit of greenery at the back. Quite military in that it celebrates the local involvement in the 1st World War with fascina...  more »

  • Did know what this would be, but it was good. Ran out of time to see it all, so possibly another visit if we are passing.  more »
  • Bankfield museum is an absolute joy. Friendly staff, and loads to see. The museum is set over three floors, everyone different, and every month or so, they change the exhibitions. Very interesting place. Behind the museum is Acroyd Park so if you need a little bit of fresh air, just nip outside where you can also find a children's playground.
  • Good, didn't know this was here. Had more than I expected. It provided an hour or so of interest 😁
  • Hidden Gem Museum ! It may only be little but is a beautiful building. It's just a shame they do not have a proper Cafe that is defiantly lacking. I went with my friend and her baby they where very accommodating and friendly with the pram. There are a few steps here and there and some small wall walks but due to the old nature of the house this is understandable.
  • This is a library but so much more. As the former residence of local hero, Ackroyd, this is a library in the true sense,wooden shelves etc, it is also a museum, covering military, fabric and local life. Set in a park and just back off the main road, this former residence is a delight. And for the ghoulish, the blade from the Halifax Gibbet is also on display.
  • Lovely set up, super friendly and helpful staff. Plus it's free :)
