good enough for sight seeing when I visited. Not really a museum person so probably the reason it was boring

It is in the heart of the city, the square nearby is full of locals and students, it is also surrounded by shops, coffee shops, boutiques and withing walking distance from train station and shoppign malls. The City Hall is a beautiful exemplar of... More

This building is amongst the finest City Halls in the UK. It reflects a time when wool was king and Bradford was one of the most important textile cities in the world. The city elders were not shy in proclaiming their civic pride and wealth through the erection of this magnificent building. The high quality and craftsmanship of the finishes... More

Must visit the council chambers which are mahogany lined and try and have afternoon tea with the Lord Mayor! If you get the chance visit the old court... More

I got married here at the register office. Lovely, olde world setting. Who knew such a gem we had in our town. Was taking thru to the hall itself for photos on the stone staircases and outside the mayors office. Such a beautiful building and has created such lovely memories
