The Piece Hall Story

Our interactive heritage space ‘The Piece Hall Story’ welcomes you to discover this iconic building and its importance at the historic centre of the world’s woollen trade. You will be able to get up close to objects from our past, explore exhibitions and even try on Georgian costume.

The Map Room

The Map Room has interactive maps, showing how woollen cloth sold in Halifax was traded across the world. In addition, there is a young explorers’ map featuring items to discover around The Piece Hall.

The Trader’s Room

In the Trader’s Room you will find one of the units in its original condition. Here you can experience the sights and sounds of what it would have been like to be standing inside The Piece Hall on a busy trading day back in 1779.
