Bradford is known as the gateway to the Yorkshire Dales National Park. But Bradford city centre also has a lot to offer visitors. Once considered the wool capital of the world, today Bradford is the first-ever UNESCO City of Film, thanks to its heritage as a filming location for beloved classics like The Railway Children, The King’s Speech and Downton Abbey. Whether you’re visiting for work or to explore one of the UK’s lesser-known gems, Bradford is full of surprises, and Jurys Inn Bradford is the perfect base from which to discover them.
Get your bearings
Located in the county of West Yorkshire, Bradford is a diverse, multicultural city, with a heritage that spans literature, art, industry and more. It’s the birthplace of renowned artist David Hockney, who studied at the Bradford School of Art and whose impact visitors can explore at both Cartwright Hall and Salts Mill in nearby Saltaire, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area’s literary ties are just as strong: the Brontë sisters lived in Haworth, just outside Bradford, where today visitors can explore the Brontë Parsonage Museum, located in their former home.
Bradford doesn’t only trade on its rich history. Some of the city’s most popular attractions are cutting edge, including the National Science and Media Museum, which spans eight floors of free galleries exploring image and sound technologies, and is home to the UK’s first IMAX cinema. Nearby, the centrepiece of Bradford is the impressive City Park, an award-winning public space with a mirror pool complete with 100 fountains, laser lights and water effects. Visit at dusk to see it at its most spectacular.
While you’re there
Bradford has claimed the crown of Curry Capital of Britain six times, so no visit would be complete without a meal in one of its celebrated curry houses, best washed down with a pint of real ale from one of the area’s local breweries, including Timothy Taylor’s and Wishbone. Feel the need to work off your dinner? Take a spin at the city’s ice arena before ending your day at Jurys Inn Bradford.
