I LOVE Bradford because…. “The people are a very proud bunch.  They want the best for their city and if something’s not right, they’ll tell you so!”

Get delicious…. “If you can’t find it in the Oastler Market – do you really need it? I love the vibrancy in there, the people, the freshness and the variance of the produce.”

Explore the historic tunnels of Sunbridgewells“I have to say we’re lucky to have such an individual place here in the city.  There’s so much on offer from the weekly underground market, to Pizza Loco serving Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas, and the Gin Bar for your favourite gin and tonic.”

Beer drinkers…. “For friendly local bars with a good selection and well kept real alescheck out: – the Rose and Crown in Sunbridge Wells, The Sparrow at North Parade and it’s great to see Eyes Brewery taproom is now open at Rawson Road.”

Let’s go walking! “UNESCO World Heritage Site Saltaire is one of the highlights of the Bradford area.  The Leeds & Liverpool Canal is perfect for walkers, discover the hidden heritage and fascinating stories along the way.  For shopping cake & art! a must visit place has to be Grade II listed Salts Mill & 1853 Gallery displaying one of the largest collections of David Hockney’s art.”
