It's not all that bad!
Member Name: The Daz
Advantages: compact, friendly.
It used to be joked that Bradford was merely a convenient car park for Leeds. Not in my opinion - the increased range of boutique shopping aside, there is no reason i'd prefer the latter fpr the former.
Changes are afoot here in Bradford - with a billion or so pounds being pumped in to to transform huge swathes of 60's concrete into modern, light and trendy living.
We also have the National Media Museum, a very good afternoon out, some stunning architecture - the Wool Exchange, the Alhambra Theatre and the majestic Town Hall to name a few.
New and old sit side by side, combining a look to the future yet not forgetting the industrial heritage that made the city.
The people are no worse than in any other large city, and most days the bustle of enterprise drowns out any sense of dullness the painful traverse of the ring road brings.
Large populations of differing cultures live in the city, and whilst some have their own distinct communities, there is rarely tension, and the city benefits from the sharing of values and beliefs.
Summary: An enjoyable visit to be had.
