About

Shipley is a short distance from Bradford and close to the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire. Shipley is a thriving town with a reputation for good restaurants and bars. The popular Aagrah is one of Yorkshire's most established Asian restaurants, and the first restaurant was in Shipley. Whatever your taste there are plenty of restaurants covering all world cuisines.

To the North of Shipley, across the River Aire, is a wooded ridge called Shipley Glen (the word "glen" referring to the little valley beneath the ridge). This has long been a popular beauty spot, and in 1895 the Shipley Glen Tramway was built to carry visitors up to the top.

The nearby Leeds - Liverpool canal is also a pleasant place for a stroll or cycle and you can admire the Five Rise Locks in neighbouring Bingley.
