Up and coming areas of Huddersfield

Huddersfield has one of the fastest-growing populations in the United Kingdom, with a vast wealth of diversity. Many areas of Huddersfield can be seen as significant for Buy-to-let or student accommodation renovations due to Huddersfield’s industrial past.


One of the more persuading reasons for Huddersfield’s growth is its attractiveness as a university town, as it currently has around 20,000 students across two campuses. The city’s nightlife is booming and has negatively affected surrounding towns and businesses. Here are a few of the best Up and Coming areas of Huddersfield:

Moldgreen is about one mile east of Huddersfield town centre and is a hub of property opportunity. Mill owners used the area for woollen cotton production during the industrial revolution, which explains the number of beautiful mills that line the streets of Moldgreen.
