It was in the 19th century that the Northern English city of Bradford first grew to prominence. Once regarded as “the wool capital of the world”, the city now attracts many expats and tourists due to its cultural offerings and historically significant landmarks. The city boasts several listed buildings of Victorian architecture, one of which is the stunning Bradford City Hall, which was completed in 1873. Another building of renown is Bradford Cathedral, whose history reaches back several hundreds of years and is still brimming with life today. The climate in Bradford is oceanic, which features warm summers and cool winters, with moderate rainfall throughout the year. Expats should have no problem getting around the city due to Bradford’s good public transportation system, which includes buses, metros and well-connected train lines. Bradford schools are reported as some of the best in the country and the University of Bradford brings many students to its doors each year. Spend a day in awe of the extensive history of Bolling Hall or catch a show at the Alhambra Theatre. Whatever you choose to do, your new home of Bradford will not disappoint.
