Whats the Westgate area like

Hello Bradfordians...

Can you tell me what the area round Westgate is like ?

Is it safe to leave your car overnight in the New Beehive car park?

What curry options do I have within half a mile of the New Beehive?

Hard to say really - we often visit the folk club at the Irish Club near the Beehive and have had no problems but it is a bit run down round there. The Beehive is one of my favourite pubs and both of the curry houses next to it are recommended - though I have not been in the Westgate for a very long time! The Sheesh Mahal does my favourite onion bhajis - thin strips of onion in a really light batter - fantastic - and a decent curry.

There are a few restaurants on Lumb Lane which is opposite the Beehive and the Sweet Centre is probably the most renowned but again a long time since I have been there. If you enjoy your beer the Fighting Cock is around 10 mins walk away on Preston St and the Castle is further down Westgate towards the city centre.

Hope you enjoy your visit - if you have a chance visit the National Media Museum and Saltaire our World Heritage Site
