"Often overlooked cultural hit" Bradford by Sjalen

Bradford Travel Guide: 85 reviews and 277 photos

If you talk to people in England, most people think of Bradford as an industrial city and one of the English centres for Asian immigrants and therfore full of riots. This is all well and true, but the riots are very infrequent and there is so much meriting a visit. The mix of UK and Asia and the old industrial site of Saltaire which has become a World Heritage Site makes this one of my favourite cities in England. Add to that the National Museum for Film and Photo, and the closeness to Haworth, home of the Bronte sisters, and you can't go wrong visiting Bradford. I just wish I had more photos to add to this page.

    Hi Charlotta, did you know that bradford is the birthplace of the Brontes? They were born on Thornton Village. Beth

    Hiya, Sorry to have to correct your minor error, although we don't like to own up to it Haworth is, in fact, firmly embodded in Bradford with a Bradford postcode of BD22 , ....Nick

    Mumtaz is more expensive than most of the curry houses of Bradford. Stick to ones nearer the university which you can see Asians using. They'll be cheaper and still authentic. My personal favourite is Omars.
