The tourist office has now been slotted into the entrance foyer of the impressive new library. It consists of some keen and helpful staff, but not a lot of brochures and is on the small side!

We came looking for the Tourist Information which has been relocated to the modern library adjoining the Piece hall. Unfortunately it is shut on a Wednesday afternoon so don't visit Halifax then!
