New homes in Bradford

 

Welcome to Bradford

Whether you’re exploring historic sites, taking the kids to the park or shopping in the city centre, there’s no shortage of things to do and places to see close to your new home in Bradford. Located on the edge of Yorkshire within easy reach of both Leeds and Manchester, Bradford could tick all the right boxes for you and your family.

A quick history

Starting life as a small settlement around a fort, Bradford was a relatively large village at the time of the Domesday Book, and by the Middle Ages had a successful leather tanning and wool industry, as well as a weekly market. 

During the 17th century, the English Civil War brought unrest to the town as the Parliamentarians fought with the invading Royalists. The following century, the industrial revolution had a big influence on Bradford, helping the textile industry to grow. The canals were built in the late 1700s, and the boost in trade and growth in business created a massive population boom in the 19th century. Bradford was connected to the railway system in 1846, and by 1897 it was named a city.

Business and industry

Bradford is home to a range of big businesses, including the Morrisons headquarters, Safestyle UK, Yorkshire Building Society and one of the large warehouses for fashion retailer Next. The city is also within commuting distance of Manchester and Leeds, where major employers include the BBC, Asda, Jet2.com and The Co-operative Group.

Things to do in the area

If you love discovering times gone by, Bradford is full of historic attractions, from the exhibitions of the National Media Museum, Bradford Industrial Museum and the Bradford Police Museum, to the impressive architecture at Bradford Cathedral.

Bradford is also home to some unique shopping destinations, including Sunbridge Wells, which has been dubbed the ‘underground quarter’ thanks to its location beneath the city. The Broadway Centre is a  modern mall with high street and designer shops, while neighbouring Saltaire Village and Ilkley are great places to browse independently-owned boutiques.

Other attractions in the city include Lister Park and the Alhambra Theatre, while Bingley Five Rise Locks and Shipley Glen Cable Tramway are nearby for family days out.

Travel and commuting

If you’re commuting to work or visiting friends and family, there are plenty of transport options from your new home in Bradford, whether you’re travelling by road, rail or air. To get to Leeds, the journey from Bradford takes just 30 minutes by car or 20 minutes by train, while Manchester is a one hour drive or train journey away.

When you’re going on holiday, Leeds Bradford Airport is only a 25 minute drive from the city centre.
