Take a stroll down North Parade to find local independent bars before heading out to catch some live music and entertainment. Make the most of your time in Bradford by booking tickets to the hottest West End performances at the Alhambra Theatre, or watching the best of South Asian and collaborative arts through music and dance at Kala Sangam.

Venture slightly further to Haworth and discover the rolling hills that inspired the Brontë sister’s works or take a short train journey to Saltaire to discover the works of David Hockney and more at the magnificent Salts Mill.
