Facilities for walkers

Food and drink
Hebden Bridge has a very wide selection of cafes (17 at the last count), restaurants (from Bistro to fine dining), take aways (Indian, Chinese and italian) and pubs – most of which provide food. Most of these food outlets will have a Walkers are Welcome sign, so muddy boots shouldn’t be a problem.

There are several micro breweries around and most pubs you go to will have a good range of guest beers and ciders (BLM).

You can see some of the variety of places to eat and drink on our local Dining Guide website.

There are also a good selection of supermarkets and great speciality food shops to replenish your supplies (but let that prevent you from visiting Mays shop shortly after you rejoin the Pennine Way).

Information Sources
The town has a visitors centre to advise you on accommodation, directions or what souvenirs to buy (Butlers Wharf, New Road). 01422 843831,

There are two walking information boards in the town, one at the railway station, the other in the town centre car park (and of course look at other pages on our website).

Finding a local Guided walk

If you are new to the area, it’s a great idea to look at local guided walks. There are three main providers of guided walks:

Calderdale Ramblers run regular walks, all over the area. They have experienced volunteer walk leaders. Non members are welcome to come on three walks as a ‘taster’. After that, you are expected to join (not expensive and with lots of other benefits).

Calderdale Heritage Walks have regular walks all over Calderdale. The leaders have a wealth of knowledge about the history and heritage of the area. There is a small charge for attending.

The National buy soma without prescription Trust runs occasional themed walks in Hardcastle Crags.

There are other local informal walking groups which you may find through Facebook or maybe the local visitor centre. We are happy to advertise any local walking group here.

West Riding Ramblers’ Association. Frequent walks in Calderdale, mainly on Sundays. They are for Ramblers members but non-members welcome on a ‘taster’ basis. 01132 957840.
