The Piece Hall

Blackledge, Halifax HX1 1RE, UK – 01422 525200

The Piece Hall is an amazing building, and it's history is very unusual. Situated very close to the centre of Halifax it is well worth a visit. Recently renovated by the Calderdale council it now features a huge Italian style piazza surrounded by a lot of high quality gift shops and it's own museum. More than a few of the outlets are currently vacant, but more will be occupied soon.

Really beautiful place and it is so nice to see it renovated. There are lots of nice artisan shops, a great soap shop, gift places etc and I hope lots more businesses come too as the place is huge. I am in a wheelchair so appreciate they have put in lifts so I can access all floors. However, getting into some of the shops is impossible as either there is a step up or the shop displays are placed with out sufficient width for my chair. So a little fustraiting to see interesting things through the window that I will never be able to buy! It's obviously a listed building so I am unsure what can be done if anything to improve access, but just be aware!

Legacy Comics

Great shop, always helpful, Simon who owns the shop has a knowledge of comics that is 2nd to none and will always help you find what you're looking for and if he hasn't got it he will always order it in or failing that point you to where you can. Cracking shop......ctacking owner. Been going in this shop for 3 and a half years now and I have to travel 20 miles to get to it and I wouldn't swap to another one.

Awesome service, friendly, a decent amount of stock. The best comic shop for at least 20 miles.
