'Greatest town in Europe': ‘Cool’ West Yorkshire town named one of the prettiest in the UK

Independent shops, pubs and cafes are great attractions, as well as the literary connections of the town.

Sylvia Plath is buried in Heptonstall’s churchyard, the home of her husband, poet laureate Ted Hughes.

Literary aficionados make a pilgrimage to the couple’s home and visit Sylvia’s grave.

The arts are an important part of the town, and a visit to Heart Gallery, Picture House Cinema or Muse Music & Love Café will give visitors an insight into the art scene of Hebden Bridge.
