Sitting snugly in the foothills of the Pennine hills, Bradford rose to fame during the Industrial Revolution as a textile city, but it has far more strings to its bow these days.
Known for its strong prominence in the media industry, as the first UNESCO City of Film and home to the National Media Museum, and with plenty of cultural hotspots to visit, there is certainly plenty to see and do in this part of West Yorkshire.
If you’re thinking of moving to Bradford, you’ll be pleased to hear that house prices are well below the national average at just over £137,000, meaning that you’ll be able to get more bang for your buck in the area!
