Cultural Holidays & Activities in Bradford
The moment you set foot in Bradford you’ll discover a city brimming with inspirational things to see and do. There’s a flourishing arts scene… fascinating exhibitions… energetic theatres… compelling events… plus stacks of live music to keep you enthralled. We’re proud of our cultural heritage. This city was the birthplace of the famous artist David Hockney, and you can thrill over his works at Salts Mill and at the new Hockney Gallery at Cartwright Hall. If literature is your passion, head to Haworth where you can walk in the footsteps of the Brontë family at the historic Brontë Parsonage Museum. You’ll find the hottest creative talent around showcased in our many galleries too. Impressions Gallery is an independent contemporary photography gallery near City Park in the heart of Bradford city centre. And be sure not to miss the National Science + Media Museum, one of the UK’s most popular museums with IMAX cinema and hands-on exhibitions.
Bradford’s been named the world’s first ever UNESCO ‘City of Film’. The honour recognises the central role the city’s played in shaping the story of the cinema – as well as Bradford’s ambitious plans to make the city one of the world’s focal points for movie making.
