Huddersfield has a large and diverse retail shopping area - mostly enclosed within the town's ring road - compared with other towns of its size. There are three adjacent shopping schemes: Kingsgate, the Packhorse Precinct and the Piazza. The Piazza offers an outdoor shopping mall bordering the Public library, with a partially grassed area, used for relaxation and various events held throughout the year such as entertainment and International Markets. Through the adjacent Market Arcade there is a covered market hall, which has listed building status, due in part to its distinctive roof formed by hyperbolic paraboloids. It is also adjacent to the town hall and public library (see Historical landmarks above). An open market is located next to the Tesco store, on the opposite side of the town centre. Virtual Huddersfield features photographs of nearly 2,000 local shops as well as videos of local events, aerial views and live webcams.
