Things to do in Bradford
Whether you’re visiting with family, taking a couple’s weekend break or you’re here on business, you’ll want to see as much of the city as possible while you’re here. To help you make the most of your stay, here’s a rundown of our favourite attractions close to our hotel in Bradford.

National Media Museum
One of the biggest and best attractions in Bradford is the National Media Museum. Located right at the heart of the city just a four-minute walk from our hotel, the museum explores the science and culture behind everything from photography to television and film. The exhibitions are free, but there’s a charge for admission to the cinema.

We recommend: going to see a film at the IMAX for an unmissable cinematic experience.

The Alhambra Theatre
If you’re looking for evening entertainment, the Alhambra Theatre is a true gem. The Grade II listed building hosts a huge range of performances throughout the year, perfect for an unforgettable night of comedy, music, dance or drama. Best of all, it’s only a two-minute walk away from our hotel on foot. We recommend: going for a VIP upgrade for a glass of champagne and entry into the Laidler Lounge

Broadway Shopping Centre
If you want to enjoy a little retail therapy, head to the Broadway Shopping Centre where you’ll find more than 50 high street stores, food outlets and even special events throughout the year. Best of all, The Broadway is only ten minutes away from Jurys Inn on foot.

We recommend: taking a ride on the battery-powered steam locomotive, the Broadway Express, to save time and energy.

For a unique shopping experience, head to Sunbridgewells, a Victorian-style underground retail complex close to City Park and a five minute walk from our hotel. If you prefer browsing independent boutiques and supporting family-run businesses, this is the place for you.

We recommend: trying the artisan food at the Quality Yorkshire Pie Company for a true taste of Bradford.

Bradford Industrial Museum
If you want to discover more about the city in times gone by, a trip to Bradford Industrial Museum is a must. See old textile machines, find out how steam power was used and look at the retro motor cars before heading to Moorside House, where the Mill Manager once lived. The museum is free.

We recommend: making sure you see the terraced mill worker’s houses, each one painstakingly done-up to reflect different decades.

Bradford Ice Rink
For families with children, Bradford Ice Rink is a great place to enjoy some all-action fun right at the heart of the city, at the public skate sessions. The arena is also home to the successful ice hockey team, the Bradford Bulldogs, so keep an eye out for upcoming fixtures before you arrive.

We recommend: checking the what’s on section of the website for regular events at the ice rink, including foam and laser parties.
