    Surrounded by the spectacular English countryside, Bradford is situated in the heart of the U.K. and is 20 minutes from Leeds and one hour by train from Manchester. There are also excellent road, rail and air links to other parts of the U.K.

    Just a short bus ride away from the city center is Saltaire, a perfectly preserved Victorian village and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is home to Salts Mill, which houses one of the largest collections of artwork by Bradford-born David Hockney. The picturesque village of Haworth, once home to the literary family the Brontes, lies among magnificent countryside, and the dramatic surroundings of Ilkley Moor provide a wonderful setting for the elegant spa town of Ilkley. The Yorkshire Dales are very popular with tourists from all over the world.

    The local community, a diverse mix of 486,000 people from around the world, is known for its friendly and welcoming attitude.

    With a thriving urban center, Bradford offers a booming social scene, historic heritage and a host of exciting cultural venues such as the fascinating National Media Museum, which is the most visited museum outside of London. Bradford is also the UNESCO first city of film.

    The University campus offers a variety of social activities for students, including over 70 clubs and societies, many shops and numerous cafes. The Theatre in the Mill and the Tasmin Little Music Centre offer professional performances and provide activities for all students.

    The students’ union offices make up the social center of the University with three bars, pool tables, jukebox, video games, vending machines, a nightclub and an independent student radio station.

    The Athletic Association oversees the activities of about 33 clubs, each dedicated to the promotion of a particular sport. The University is one of six national Centres of Excellence for Cricket. Bradford’s geographical position also makes it an ideal center for outdoor sports such as climbing, orienteering, potholing, mountain biking, hang-gliding, and even canoeing and sailing on local rivers and reservoirs. 

    The Student's Union organizes regular trips to various parts of the country such as York and the seaside, providing an ideal way for students to make new friends and see more of the U.K.
