My Bradford by Lisa Brankin
I would take a first-time visitor to my city to Haworth it is a charming village amongst inspirational moorland.
- My favourite restaurant is the Cut Waterside restaurant at Shipley because of the quiet relaxed surroundings of a canal side location and it delicious modern British cuisine.
- My favourite event in my city is Saltaire Festival because it is a fun, vibrant art & music event.
- My favourite pub is Shipley Pride because they have a great video jukebox; it’s a traditional pub; think real ale and dogs allowed.
- I would have my picture taken outside City Hall (location that shouts Bradford) because of the landmark bell/tower clock.
- My favourite view of the city is looking across the valley from Bolton Road. You can see for miles on a clear day, the view takes in all that defines Bradford countryside, Bradford City football ground, and industrial heritage; mill chimneys standing proud in the distance.
- You can buy great gifts at Salts Mill from one of many independent stores.
- For the best night out, I would go Alhambra theatre, because it attracts Broadway shows and great actors.
- The most unusual thing about my city is the House of Rose & Brown vintage shop because not only is it a great shop but they hold fashion shows and regular vintage fairs in Saltaire.
- I would describe the people of my city as friendly and down to earth.
- If you have half a day in my city, I would suggest you visit the Bradford Industrial Museum. When I think of the history of Bradford I think of wool and mills all of which can be found at the Industrial museum which celebrates Bradford’s Industrial heritage.
- The best way to see my city is on foot, following great countryside walks or trails of the city centre.
- I would like to stay at Midland Hotel if I came to visit because of its Victorian charm, and stunning ballroom with glittering chandeliers.
