Discover Bradford, see what you have been missing!
Bradford was once considered to be the wool capital of the world and is now proud to be the first ever UNESCO City of Film.
Bradford has an impressive history and this is reflected in the striking architecture found throughout the city.

In contrast the newest feature to amaze you in Bradford is City Park, a brilliant award winning high tech water feature. You can see 100 fountains, laser lights, mist and water effects and much more. The space has gained a reputation for staging a fantastic, high quality programme of events and is very popular during the summer months.
Bradford is also a cultural city with a flourishing arts scene, fascinating exhibitions and beautiful theatres. There are attractions such as the National Media Museum, Cartwright Hall and Impressions Gallery, one of the UK’s most celebrated photography venues and champions emerging talent.

To round off your trip another must try is a 'Bradford curry', as in 2015 Bradford retained the Curry Capital of Britain title for five years in a row. With over 200 Asian restaurants, many award winning, you will definitely find one that will tickle your taste buds. Alternatively try North Parade and the West End area where you will find local independent bars and restaurants, offering something new in Bradford.
