Pet-Friendly Bradford Holidays are Full of Surprises.

in a city pet friendly self-catering bradfordAt the foothills of the Pennines lies Bradford. This West Yorkshire city has a fascinating industrial past, which tourists can explore and visitor attractions for lovers of culture. A holiday in and around Bradford also offers access to wonderful countryside and the opportunity for lots of walks with your dog. Yes, the good news is that you can bring your pet along for your family break, as the area provides pet-friendly accommodation.
You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to the wide open spaces of Bradford district and walking trails are plentiful. One of the most popular areas is ‘Bronte Country’, where you’ll appreciate the inspiration that the dramatic moors gave the three writing Bronte sisters. Other places to ramble in the locality include Ilkley Moor, Middleton Woods, Nab Wood and the area around Queensbury.

As for the city itself, one of its most prestigious attractions is the National Media Museum. This fascinating museum tells the history of film, TV, radio and photography, with the aid of photographs, footage and early pioneering equipment. Learn how a television programme is put together today and how the digital age has changed how we receive media. Watch a presentation in the IMAX theatre, which was the first to be opened in Britain, or see a film in one of the other two cinemas in the building.

At the heart of Bradford city is City Park, a sophisticated water feature, said to be the largest one in the country. It takes on many forms and you may see it as a calm, reflective mirror pool or a dramatic fountain display with lasers and water spouts. People meet here and in the surrounding cafes and restaurants.
For a change in gear, Bradford Industrial Museum shows how the city played such an important part in the textile industry. Housed in a former mill, exhibits include machinery associated with textiles, engineering and printing in addition to motor vehicles. See terraced houses typical of where the mill workers used to live.
In contrast with the domestic arrangements of mill workers, Bolling Hall is a magnificent house and the former home of two wealthy local families. Parts of the building originated in medieval times. Rooms contain furniture and décor, typical of the 1500s, 1700s and1700s. A ‘death mask’ of Oliver Cromwell resides in the Civil War Room. Bolling Hall is said to have its very own ghost, in the form of the White Lady!

Art lovers will appreciate the collections at Cartwright Hall. Artwork here is mainly by British artists from the 1800s and 1900s, with the addition of work from outside Britain. Artists exhibited include Goya, William Blake, Andy Warhol and Bradford born David Hockney. Its setting in Lister Park also affords the opportunity to spend time in this award-winning green space. It’s a family day out, with a boating lake, the Mughal Gardens and an adventure playground.

As with so many Northern cities, Bradford has transformed itself into a visitor friendly destination with lots to do. Pets and their owners will always find something of interest in this unique location.
