Hiring a car at Huddersfield

Huddersfield is a large market town in West Yorkshire, at the foothills of the eastern Pennines. Huddersfield was a textile town and to a much lesser degree, still is today. The splendid Victorian buildings that can still be seen today are an expression of Victorian civic pride. The railway station on St George’s Square is a magnificent Grade 1 listed building that has been described as a stately home with trains. A statue of former Prime Minister Harold Wilson, who was born in the town, stands in front of the station. Huddersfield is also famous for sport, with Huddersfield Town F.C. and the local rugby super league team, Huddersfield Giants, both playing at the Galpharm Stadium, a mile outside the centre on the Leeds Road. There are excellent opportunities for shopping in the town, which is largely pedestrianized, with malls at the Pack Horse Shopping Centre, Kingsgate and Piazza. The premises of Enterprise Rent-A-Car are situated on Hoyer Industrial Park, one and a half miles from St George’s Square on Leeds Road. Leeds Road is a busy bus route, and getting to the site shouldn’t be a problem.
