UNESCO City of Film

One of Bradford’s many achievements is that it was the first city to become a UNESCO City of Film, speaking volumes about its impact on the industry. And with a stunning mix of architecture and idyllic moorland nearby, it’s not hard to see why. You can spot the city’s varied scenery in a number of films and TV series, including Peaky Blinders, Downton Abbey and The Crown. If you’re an aspiring film producer or keen to get started in the media industry, then you’ll certainly find all the support you need when buying a home here. The Bradford Film Heritage Project is a testament to its work for the industry. The Bradford Film Programme supports film education in primary schools, universities and community groups.

But if you don’t fancy picking up the camera lens, then don't worry. Plenty of other sectors have a strong base in the city. Digital, engineering and financial services are just some of the industries thriving here. In terms of career offerings, Bradford has something for all homebuyers.

Plenty to explore

We’ve already mentioned Bradford’s beautiful architecture, but what we haven’t mentioned is the industrial landmarks and leafy green spaces, all blending together to make a jungle for you to explore. Buy a home here and you can make the most of its amenities and attractions.

The Cartwright Hall Art Gallery, the National Science and Media Museum and the Industrial Museum all offer great days out, as does the Alhambra Theatre. There are a large number of shops and restaurants to enjoy - what better place to enjoy an Indian than the UK’s curry capital - and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre of Saltaire is nearby.

Another location close to your Bradford home is Haworth, a quiet, cobbled-street town that was home to the literary force that were the Bronte sisters. And another stone’s throw away is the classic moorland of Ilkley, so you can live out your own fairy tale amongst the rugged windswept landscapes right on the doorstep of your new home.
