The City of Bradford

Bradford is a vibrant, friendly, creative and cosmopolitan city, where around 70 languages are spoken and a population of more than 525,000 people.

It has a lively nightlife with restaurants serving food from all over the world, as well as shops, cinemas and sporting venues.

Bradford is also recognised as being one of the least expensive student cities in the UK, so it offers you great value for money too.

You’ll find art, music and theatre right on your doorstep. Just a short walk from the City Campus is the National Media Museum - one of the most visited national museums outside London, and the Alhambra Theatre, a major touring venue offering top West End shows, contemporary dance and ballet. Nearby St George’s Hall offers the best of touring music, comedy and variety shows, as well as hosting the city’s orchestral concert season.

Bradford is proud to be such a global city, and hosts annual street events and dazzling festivals which bring residents and visitors together to enjoy the benefits of living in a multi-cultural community.
