Overall Experience

Bradford Visitor information


Bradford is in west Yorkshire, and could be considered the most multicultural centre in the UK outside of London, and has two must-see attractions. The first is the National Media Museum, and the second, the industrial heritage site of Saltaire. Held in June or July, the major annual event is the Bradford Mela, a single day celebration of the arts, culture and food of the Indian subcontinent.

The main shopping area in the city is the Kirkgate Shopping Centre, which contains shops as well as an indoor market space and plenty of car parking. The oldest building in the city is the cathedral, and there are some fine Victorian buildings and mills to explore during a visit to Bradford.

Getting there

The city is well-served with transport systems. The M606 connects Bradford with the motorway network. The closest international airport is Leeds Bradford Airport which is 6 miles north east of the city.


Bradford History


Bradford has always been hugely industrial, and grew substantially during the Industrial Revolution. Within just a few decades, it transformed from a fairly rural wool manufacturing settlement, to a polluted city. It’s heyday was during the Victorian era, when it was the world’s biggest producer of worsted cloth. During this time, the city’s skyline filled with mill chimneys, and the surrounding hills were filled with rows of back-to-back houses. For evidence of the wealth generated during the nineteenth century, one only needs to take a look at the Venetian-Gothic Wool Exchange building on Market Street, or go for a walk through Little Germany in the northeast of the city centre. Little Germany was names so because it was populated by German wool merchants during the second half of the 1800s.
