Bradford is a revelation! A centre full of architectural gems, many looking recently cleaned. The City Hall stands out on the edge of Centenary Square, itself a tribute to modern architectural planning. The Hall has a marvellous Italianate tower. Bradford should not be missed!

The building has undergone a number of refurbishments as Bradford council tries to shrink its property portfolio. It is a beautiful building and I have had the opportunity to see a few of the functional rooms.

town halls in the country---I would probably rate it just behind Manchester and just above Rochdale--all three are must see's when in the area.
