The building has undergone a number of refurbishments as Bradford council tries to shrink its property portfolio. It is a beautiful building and I have had the opportunity to see a few of the functional rooms.

town halls in the country---I would probably rate it just behind Manchester and just above Rochdale--all three are must see's when in the area.

We stopped by the Bradford City Hall on our recent day trip to Bradford. The clock tower was under renovation, but still an awe inspiring building from the outside. We went inside because we had seen photos on Trip Advisor and had hoped to take some photos ourselves. It was a week day and there were activities going on in... More

We went with family to City Hall's Sneaky Peaks Open Day and was pleasantly surprised at how big it was inside. We walked all around the building looking in various rooms, the Mayoral Room, Banquesting Suite, The Court Room etc and had a look at the exhibits especially the wonderful Silver on display. We spent around 2 hours and met... More

The Bradford City Hall is a much bigger building that what I thought when I saw it in pictures. Just in front, there is the main square with lots of benches and a large fountain that turns into a playground during the summer months. You could even have a picnic around there, or at least I saw people doing that.... More

The building from the outside is gorgeous and equally so inside. I had a rare chance to get into the building for an afternoon tea with the Lord Mayor and was given a tour around. Everything was well preserved and beautiful. Wish it open its door to the public more.

Bradford City Hall has opened its door to the general public once again which is good. I always like to see how my council tax is being used. Took my grumpy teenager with me and he was quite interested. I visited the Town Hall last year but we did not have the same access as this time. The public had... More

There was a giant clock on top of this town hall and lovely water-based square is great to sit around.
