Where are we?

The Head Of Steam Huddersfield is actually located in the main buildings of Huddersfield railway station, occupying most of the west end. We have direct entrances from Platform 1 and from St. George's Square.

How to get there

Bus: We are in the town centre, so any bus will drop you near to the train station. The bus station is about 200m west of the pub.

Rail: Huddersfield (Platform 1)

A bit about the outlet 

The station buildings are regarded as the best in Britain, and are grade 1 listed. When we took the premises over, they had been largely derelict for a great many years. We carried out a big renovation project and opened in March 1996.

The outlet is a large, 4-roomed pub, with the rooms in 'quarters' around a central servery area. Each room has its own character and its own locals!  

  • The Buffet acts as the main station buffet room. This is the main railway artefact 'museum' room, and is quiet; 
  • The Family Room is red, and has more railway artefacts on display and plenty of comfortable benches;
  •  The Lounge is the room live music takes place in. It is also where most of the advertising enamels are displayed;
  •  The Bar is a wood-floored room which houses a display of antique advertising posters and a neon sign collection, as well as art exhibitions. Very popular with students particularly - maybe it's the comfy settees?!

There are tables and chairs on the platform all year round (if you can stand the cold!) and more are put out in the square on warm sunny days.
