Bradfords not too bad
Member Name: magicmumof3
Advantages: Curry capital, plenty for families to do here
Disadvantages: scruffy areas, the stop to the regeneration
Bradford is my home town, I have lived here all my life, to be honest its not actually as bad as some people make out. It does have its bad areas, but so does everywhere!
Its has two good sporting teams, Bradford City football, and Bradford Bulls for the rugby.
The shopping in Bradford isnt that great, but it does have most of the shops you need in the city centre of in the nearby Forster Square retail park. There is a regeneration programme that is supposed to be getting built with hundreds of more shops, but it seems to have come to a standstill!
There is a great museum, which is free, and its really good, its also home to the Imax cinema.
Bradford is home to some nice parks, Lister Park has recently been done up and has a large boating lake.
There are lots of nice little towns in the Bradford area. we have Saltaire, a historic heritage town, Shipley etc.
So all in all its not that bad living in Bradford, theres plenty to do for everybody, and Bradford is also the curry capital, so there is always somewhere to go for something to eat too.
Summary: Not as bad as everymakes out
