LONDON TRAINS Please note, if you have friends travelling by train from London there is a direct train 2.5 hours to BRIGHOUSE which you can book via Grand Central website. BRIGHOUSE station is 2 miles from Norfolk House. If you book in advance tickets are £40 return.
Huddersfield Train Station has excellent links to the whole of the UK but from London you would need to change at Leeds or Wakefield and therefore adding time on to your journey.
Huddersfield is a large town with some great Restaurants and Bars. Norfolk House is a 10 minute walk from Huddersfield town centre. I would advise a short taxi ride if your wearing heels as its a steep uphill walk from the town to the house. If you are looking for something a little more cosmopolitan I would head to Leeds Centre, 20 mins in a cab or a short train ride from Hudds train Station.
