Halifax is a large town in West Yorkshire, England. The town has a population of 82,056. Halifax lies close to Huddersfield and Bradford. The major cities of Leeds and Manchester are slightly further afield. The economic booms of Leeds and Manchester, particularly in the financial sector have led to Halifax becoming a commuter town for these two cities.

Halifax has a historic town centre, compromising much Victorian architecture. Landmarks include the Town Hall, Piece Hall, the Wainwright monument, the Square Chapel and Halifax Minister.
