From Haworth, home of the Bronte family, surrounded by the wild, rugged, rolling moors to the city centre shopping in Leeds, West Yorkshire gives a fascinating insight into its old industrial, and new cultural heritage.
Nowadays a haven of TV and film locations, historical houses, industrial heritage and fantastic scenery await you.
Bradford is a city rich in history from its woollen heydays and its multi-cultural diversity. The industrial past is still very evident in its architecture and buildings like the City Hall.
Leeds‘ buildings are of infinite variety - like the Town Hall, the City Varieties Music Hall built in 1885 and the modern Royal Armouries. The regeneration of the city makes it a very thriving place to be Sport, clubbing, shopping and eating out, and the vast open spaces of the parks and gardens ensure a varied and interesting vibrant city.
