Welcome to your Mumsnet Local site for Kirklees!

If you're lucky enough to live here you'll already be familiar with some of the goodies our neighbourhood has to offer.

Kirklees boasts several large towns including Huddersfield, Dewsbury and Batley, each with their own impressive array of libraries, parks, museums, leisure and shopping centres. An eclectic mix of smaller towns and villages also has much to offer - from the farmers' markets in Holmfirth to the historic canal tunnel at Marsden.

If you're looking for a family adventure there's plenty to choose from - just for starters try Kirklees Light Railway in Clayton West, or Ponderosa rare breeds farm near Norristhorpe. Culture vultures can satisfy their urges at one of the area's many theatres, galleries and performance venues.

For details and reviews on all this and more, just delve into our friendly local site. Feel free to add a review of your own, and if you know of an event or business you think local parents should know about, please add your listing, free of charge.

While you're here, don't forget to pay a visit to our talk board or get involved in a meet-up with other local mums. We'd love to meet you!
