Bradford Hotels

The rich industrial and economic history that put Bradford on the map in centuries past persists today in the form of its many listed buildings – over 5,000 to be exact. You’ll find numerous preserved historic sites, from neo gothic buildings to the intricate arches of the vast Wool Exchange. Modern Bradford is fast becoming noteworthy too, becoming the very first UNESCO City of Film, so you’ll find plenty of interesting art and media in the area, as well as great shopping.

Things to see

Thanks to lots of investment, Bradford has become a great spot for nightlife, culture, and shopping for visitors and locals alike. By day, you can hit the centre, browsing and buying to your heart’s content at a number of well-known stores. In the evening, there’s a huge range of restaurants, bistros and bars to grab a well-deserved glass of refreshing wine. If you’re in the area, then you should also try one of Bradford’s growing number of curry houses for a spicy kick, too. With such a wealth of history, you won’t want to miss attractions such as the perfectly preserved industrial town of Saltaire. The sprawling factory shimmers in the deep emerald of the passing canal, and within the town you’ll find shops, places to eat, and a David Hockney Exhibition. To catch a glimpse of Bradford’s more modern side, head over to the National Media Museum.
