Still known as Wool City, Bradford has evolved from its industrial past and diversified into a powerhouse of artistic creativity and diverse attractions. Striking architecture and unique locations helped the city become the first Unesco City of Film, with many places instantly recognisable from film and TV programmes. Saltaire village is a World Heritage Site, dominated by the imposing Salts Mill, and is home to an impressive array of independent shops, galleries, cafés and bars. Haworth is more rural, picture perfect, and was the home of the Brontës, surrounded by miles of rugged moorland immortalised in Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights.
With a history of encouraging people from around the world to live and work here, its diverse heritage forms a major part of Bradford’s rich tapestry of arts and culture, and ensures a friendly welcome for all. Parks, formal gardens and water features breathe life into the city, jostling with galleries, theaters and an array of bars, cafés and restaurants. From Hockney originals to urban street sculpture, world class theater to the world’s longest running folk club, yorkshire puddings to chicken biryani, this vibrant city will surprise you in the best possible way.
