St Ives

Fun for all the Family

Spend time together as a family and enjoy a day out in Bradford district. Bradford offers great value for money with its many free attractions and activities.

When the sun is shining, burn off some energy at one of the districts many parks; with a boating lake at Lister Park in Bradford or the adventure playground in Bingley St Ives. You can enjoy splashing around in the outdoor pool at Ilkley Lido or simply play by the river in Roberts Park, Saltaire.

There is still plenty to do on those rainy days as well.  There are many free attractions such as the National Media Museum, Cartwright Hall and Cliffe Castle Museum. Look out for the activities for children run by Bradford museums and galleries during the school holidays.  For something a bit different try the Bradford IMAX or travel by steam train on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway and the Embsay and Bolton Abbey Steam Railway.

Events and festivals are run througout the year as well child friendly theatre performances and Big Screen Film and Fun Wednesdays in City Park. So you really can guarantee the children won't get bored in Bradford district.

What's on!
