Not only is it an outstanding representative of Bradford taking root in the textile industry, but the salt factory also provides more services. The combination of food, shopping, cultural heritage and culture makes spending a day or two very easy. Across the road, you will also find the graveyard of Sir Titus Sutter and his family.
2. Bradford Industrial Museum.
The museum is housed in a fully functional spinning mill, hidden near Harrogate Road. This is a real treasure and a great opportunity to relive Bradford’s industrial history. Hear the clink of machines in motion and learn about the practices that made Bradford one of the most important regions in the United States. The textile gallery has also recently been renovated on the first floor and it is really attractive now. If you have children, they will even have the opportunity to ride a horse-drawn carriage!
3. Bradford Mela.
You can only capture Mela at certain times of the year (usually when daylight saving time begins). At the time it was the largest Mela in Europe and it would attract more than 100,000 people over the weekend. You can jump from one stage to another and absorb all the spectacular bhangra bands.
4. National Media Museum.
Whenever you visit the National Media Museum, this is always a big deal. You can watch family movies for about £1. These screenings are relaxing and enjoyable, so you don’t have to worry about your children getting settled. Children of all ages are welcome to participate in the family assessment, other parents may also encounter the same problem! There is also a special handicraft centre on the top floor, where you and your children can build and participate in movie-related activities. If you have no children, the National Media Museum can provide harvests from British cinemas and other regions.
5. Roberts Park.
Okay, this is just a park. But it is impressive, you can easily spend an afternoon having a picnic here on a glorious summer day. Why not buy ice cream on the barge? Don’t forget to bring a piece of bread to feed the many ducks, geese and swans there. The Leeds-Liverpool Canal also runs through the park, and if you have a few hours of free time, you will be impressed by walking. If you are a family, there is also a play area to keep the children busy.
