What to Do

Brighouse high street has returned to business with most non-essential retail shops given the green light to reopen and each business has ensured the safety of their customers is the top priority. The shops in Brighouse have made lots of changes in preparation for reopening. Most have adapted with one-way systems and only a certain number of customers allowed in their shops at one time.
Most businesses are operating temporary opening hour, so we suggested that you check on the business website before visiting Brighouse.
There’s plenty to do in Brighouse, from a gentle stroll along the Calder and Hebble Navigation Canal to an adrenaline-fueled visit to Rokt Climbing Gym, how about a visit to our town centre which is chock full of independent shops, there is sure to be something that catches your eye or if you are looking for a moment of contemplation pay a visit to our Art Galleries.
