Historically a dense, industry-driven town, Bradford is one of the UK’s ten largest cities and is (at times, fairly) written off as a grim, gritty northern city. However, amid the 60's concrete architectural chaos and traffic ‘mares, there are pretty bits dotted around and a £30m regeneration on the cards.
