Go out on the town

There are lots of bars and pubs in Bradford which are worth a look, whether you’re looking for a traditional English pub or a trendy nightclub. Even if you’re not up for a big night out, you could always enjoy a quiet drink with a friend at the jazz night at The City Vaults and see who you might meet. It’s much easier to strike up a conversation in a laidback atmosphere.

Visit a museum

There are so many wonderful museums and galleries in Bradford, frequented by tourists and locals alike. From 1820 to 1861, the Brontë sisters (along with their brother Banwell) lived in Thornton in Bradford before moving to the parsonage at Haworth in the heart of West Yorkshire’s Brontë Country. There, they wrote a range of novels that have become classics in English literature, including ‘Wuthering Heights’ and ‘Jane Eyre’. Explore the place where the romantic stories were born at the Brontë Parsonage Museum and maybe you’ll start your own!
