You wouldn't know it was there, but well worth a visit it's a lovely short walk up through the wood & if your lucky the mini steam train might be operating.

Used to live right next to Northcliffe Woods. Close to a golf course, it has towering sides and boulders left over from the last ice age. In summer, a little miniature railway is run by volunteers, which the kids loved when small. A bit of a dog walkers' paradise, though.

The entrance is clean and inviting and there's much to do for families: tennis courts, bowling greens, swings and a slide etc. the allotments were busy and well maintained and beyond all of this is a lovely walk up a slight hill but with great views across the Aire Valley. At the end, near the golf club, is a flight... More

Northcliffe Woods is a beautiful walk whatever the season. Ancient trees, a tiny stream, even a model railway makes for an interesting and varied stroll. Particularly beautiful in the Spring, carpets of bluebells provide a wonderful perfume and a haze of periwinkle blue. In summer meadow is left unmown apart from narrow pathways through the wildflowers and many grasses. The... More

This well established park on some old quarries gifted to the people of Shipley in the 1920's has a little something for everything. Starting at the bottom it has tennis courts for a tiny fee, a bowling green, one new playground, an older playground at the top of the hill, numerous playing fields complete with nets etc, allotments, wild meadows,...

Northcliffe park itself is on the outskirts of Bradford. Its huge, open and extremely peaceful. Its a great place to go for a walk and see the beautifully kept flower beds and grass. There's a children's play area and bowing green. You can walk for miles and forget that you are in the middle of a big town. Its extremely... More

This is a wonderful place to visit, no matter what time of the year. Golden meadows and woodland carpeted with bluebells in the springtime, woodland with wild garlic and other fauna to wonder through any time of the year; a miniature steam railway for young children to ride on; you can even get married here! There are children's playgrounds to... More
