“Why Have I Never Been Before?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

This has been on my "to do" list for too long so made amends on a dull/damp day. Wow, a veritable tardis when you step inside. And so many varying styles as you move from room to room. Good for kids aged 8+ with activity sheets for them to work their way round with. Also hosts a small lending library run by the council. Just a pity the gardens out front aren't better tended. Easy access by bus within 10 minutes from Bradford Interchange on the 621 or 634. Get off at the first stop where the car park brown arrow sign is. Nice looking spacious public park on the other side of the road, but too damp to go off exploring.

“Wow - a 14th century pele tower this far south”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2013

But more than this! A delightful relatively unknown museum with 14th, 15th and 18th century parts, furnished appropriately and accessibly. Such helpful staff too. A little gem - well done Bradford for keeping this gem in good heart.
