Bradford is a revelation! A centre full of architectural gems, many looking recently cleaned. The City Hall stands out on the edge of Centenary Square, itself a tribute to modern architectural planning. The Hall has a marvellous Italianate tower. Bradford should not be missed!

This Building is wonderful. If you like your architectural Bradford is an inspiration. With the York Stone and other beautiful graded listed buildings in easy heritage walks something around every corner
