You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

1 &, 3 Market St, Halifax HX1 1RN, UK – 01422 421461

I went into the bank, with a complicated query. It was nice to see a bank with real people as staff on the shop floor. As I walked in a young lady introduced herself and asked how she could help. I explained the problem and she invited me to sit down on one of the settees in the customer lounge whilst she went away and did her thing, coming back with an answer that resolved my query. Very impressed.

Always busy but staff super at what they do always go to this branch with questions

Calderdale Royal Hospital

Salterhebble, Halifax HX3 0PW, UK – 01422 357171

Staff amazing friendly n professional.. facilities warm clean n welcoming well sign posted and clear... only downfall is car park it not monitored allowing cars to enter then spend upto 25 mins waiting to park whilst more cars enter despite none leaving

Received fantastic care during and after the birth of my son. The nursing staff were amazing and I will never forget my experience in there. I had planned to give birth in another large hospital however so happy I decided to change to Halifax. Only negative I would say is that parking can be an issue in the afternoon.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Halifax


Broad St, Halifax HX1 1YA, UK – 01422 363063

Normal Nandos experience! A British staple, tasty chicken and spicy sauce.

Fantastic Staff was able to do a takeaway order for a 100 people in the space of an hour. The food was great and made a very tired and hungry film crew very happy.


1, Warehouse, 1 Canal Basin, Sowerby Bridge, Halifax HX6 2AG, UK – 01422 835500

Fantastic food. Great experience and the staff are amazing. I'd strongly recommend a visit. The exotic meats over the weekend are great to try. There are some fantastic combinations of the sauces and oils and if you are ever stuck the staff have some great recommendations.

This is the best thing ever it's always busy so book ahead and it can get quite warm inside with the stoves on all the time, I really feel for the chefs if I'm hot whilst eating. So you pick your veg, noodles and meat, can leave the meat out of you're vegan/veggie. Then you pick an oil and a sauce and some extras such as cashew nuts. The chefs fry it up in front of you, it takes about 5 mins from choice to cook and they pass you the cooked food. You can go back as many times as you like! Obviously this doesn't really work for big groups as you'll never really be sat at the same time however it's great if you've got picky eaters and human dustbins as the choice is entirely yours and you can go back as many times as you like!

Pizza Express

8 Broad St, Halifax HX1 1YA, UK – 01422 343008

We walked in 9.15pm on a Saturday night had amazing service from start to finish, it did feel like we waited a while but the staff were so lovly and chatty we didnt mind, Megan is a credit to your restaurant she was amazing with my very tired little girl. Once food came it was amazing and very tasty and looked beautiful. Thanks Megan.

I was going to leave a review saying how attentive and friendly the staff are; about how the quality of the food is as good as any pizza express; about how it's light and bright compared to other branches; and how the prices are the same as anywhere else in the country (including London). However, lying wide awake in my hotel room at 3:30am I'm convinced that wasn't the decaf coffee I clearly asked for. Grr.

Parkinson Lane Community Primary School

Parkinson Ln, Halifax HX1 3XL, UK – 01422 362227

Both my girls have started this school on 13th March 2017... the school itself exceeded my expectations above and beyond from what my initial thoughts and experience of primary schools were .... also my girls (6yrs and 5yrs of age) have had absolutely no difficulties in settling in and this due to the staff and their fellow class mates which ease my worries as a parent having pulled them out of their previous school mid way through the academic year... fantastic move.. wish I had done it sooner... I have full faith in the school that my girls will now achieve their full potential and much, much more.

My daugter and sons go there
