A very old church now a cathedral. Best points are probably the wonderful stained glass windows. We'll worth a visit.

This is a beautiful building and definitely worth a visit if your in Bradford for a few days. Its very close to the centre which is great as its easy to get to and its in walking distance. Even if you are not a Christian but enjoy architecture you will love a trip to the Cathedral. The clergy are very... More

Lovely genuine cathedral with great architecture and welcoming to all visitors of all faiths I noticed. Fabulous views down to the city from here and the climb up church bank to it (if your legs can manage it) is a full work out!

My visit to the Cathedral was many years ago but memorable. I carried the flag for my Girl Guide company into the Cathedral in 1951, as I knew it would be my last visit as we were leaving for Australia it is also a poignant memory. My mother was a parishioner during her teenage years and was confirmed at the... More

This is a small Cathedral overlooking the City on Church Bank. It is unimposing as it is not in the City centre. As Bradford is a small compact city the cathedral is easily reached on foot and is a joy to behold. A wonderful peaceful domain which shouldn't be missed.

Me and my Husband got married at Bradford Cathedral 2 weeks ago! It honestly was just perfect! We are from Bradford and we used to drive past and my husband would say would you like to get married there? I never thought it was possible. However we attended the church for about 18 months prior to our wedding. And my... More

Just loved this cathedral, developed in the 20th century from a Parish Church. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, rather than austere and remote. The 'art works' from a range of historic periods is attractive, but the real, and to some degrees secret, treasure are the stained glass windows from William Morris' early Arts and Crafts factory. There are windows... More

We didn't actually get to visit the cathedral because you couldn't even get into the grounds. We realised we wouldn't be able to go inside as we were only there in the early morning or late afternoon. We would have liked to have at least walked around the outside but it has a wall all around it and the entrance... More

In response to a previous reviewer, it's not Durham Cathedral, is it, but all the better for it, say I. A lovely big church, not really a cathedral, full of interesting memorials, friendly atmosphere, clearly a place of worship first and foremost, as it should be, unlike some other tourist magnet cathedrals I could mention (I spy with my little...

Don't waste your time on this! The inside is just as uninspiring as the outside (and it's a bugger to park!). Having visited Durham Cathedral with Diane - a local resident there - we decided to do my "local" - an embarassing disappointment!
