Come to Marsden and explore a wealth of outdoor delights and a rich industrial heritage. But don't be fooled, this is a thoroughly modern village, where contemporary arts and crafts sit perfectly alongside quirky events, country ales and village stores.

Former inns are award-winning restaurants; walking shoes, not clogs, tread the footpaths; and canal boats, once used to transport coal, carry holidaymakers along the Huddersfield Narrow Canal and through the Standedge Tunnel - the longest, highest and deepest canal tunnel in Britain.

Explore the National Trust Marsden Moor estate's windswept ecological paradise - visit Pule Hill for magnificent 360 degree views; Wessenden Valley for spectacular sunsets; and the scheduled ancient monument Eastergate Bridge which dates back to the 17th century. Wind down after a hike in the hills; treat yourself to mouthwatering fresh cream cakes, a delicious ice-cream sundae, or try a pint of real ale by the riverside.
From traditional folklore to contemporary jazz, Marsden is home to an eclectic programme of events, many of which date back hundreds of years making them well worth a visit - Imbolc Fire Festival, Marsden Jazz Festival and Marsden Cuckoo Day to mention a few.
