Student life in Bradford

Cradled by the Pennine mountains, bustling Bradford is the UK’s fourth-largest city with a vibrant, international culture

For such a large city, Bradford has a pleasant, laid-back atmosphere. The city center is set around a spacious green park. By night, lights surrounding the park’s 100-foot fountain illuminate the amazing gothic City Hall and iconic clock tower. Bradford’s beautiful Victorian buildings have been used as the backdrop for over 100 period dramas, movies and TV shows. It has even been recognized as UNESCO’s first ‘City of Film’. Whatever your taste, don’t miss sampling some of the tastiest curries in Bradford’s 200 Asian restaurants. The city has a thriving nightlife too. The streets of Little Germany are student hotspots or you can find quirky, hipster hangouts in the North Parade area.
