Best areas to live in Bradford

Bradford may have lived in the shadow of its neighbour, Leeds, but it’s home to lots of nice suburbs and villages, with housing that’s much more affordable. Whatever your budget and requirements are, there are lots of great places to live in Bradford.


Situated 3.5 miles north of Bradford, the city centre is easily reachable by train, with trains taking less than 10 minutes.

One train stop away from Shipley, Saltaire is a 15-minute drive away from Bradford. There’s lots of green space nearby, with Roberts Park on your doorstep, and Ilkley Moor just 20 minutes away. House prices are slightly more expensive here, at £218,693 on average, which is perhaps no surprise when you consider it’s a UNESCO world heritage site, and regularly cited as one of the best places to live in the north.

Located partway between Bradford and Leeds, asking prices for properties in Apperley Bridge have increased by 29.5% over the last five years, with average values standing at £266,921. The pretty canal walks and quaint pubs are a huge draw to the area, as is its proximity to Leeds Bradford airport (it’s less than 5 miles away), for when you want to jet off on an overseas adventure.


If you’d prefer to be further away from the city centre, then Bingley, located 5.5 miles north west of Bradford, could be the perfect place for you. Popular with commuters due to the train station, you can reach Bradford in 15 minutes, and Leeds in 25 minutes. On average, properties in Bingley sell for £235,826, and you’ll find a mixture of charming stone houses, and mills converted into modern apartments.


5 miles south of Bradford city centre, Birkenshaw’s proximity to the M62 means it’s easy to reach the likes of Leeds, Huddersfield, and Manchester. The average cost of a home here stands at £227,218, and the area is home to several shops, restaurants and takeaways.

Things to do in Bradford

Bradford’s rich industrial and film heritage is apparent throughout the city’s buildings and streets. Whilst you can easily pop to nearby Leeds for a daytrip, we’re sure you’ll find lots of things to do in Bradford that will instead, keep you entertained on your weekends and days off!

Visit the National Science and Media Museum

The National Science and Media Museum is unique in that it displays the science and culture behind sound and images, and looks at how it impacts our lives. Its exhibitions show world-renowned works from the film, TV and photography spaces; and It’s also home to an IMAX theatre and three cinema screens, in ode to Bradford’s title of UNESCO city of film.

Soak up some culture at the Alhambra

Dating back to 1914, it’s one of the most recognisable buildings in Bradford, and seats 1,400 people. The Northern Ballet, the Royal Shakespeare Company and Matthew Bourne all tour here; and once you’ve finished the watching show, enjoy destination dining at the Alhambra’s restaurant.

Relax at Lister Park

Bradford’s largest park is hugely popular amongst locals, with a picturesque boating lake, as well as several pretty flower gardens, a children’s playground, and basketball and tennis courts. The Grade II listed park is due to undergo a £650,000 refurbishment, which will include a music zone, and a giant tower, measuring 9m tall.

Pay a day trip to Salts Mill

This former textile mill has been turned into an art gallery and entertainment centre. Salts Mill is the only place in the country that has a permanent exhibition of David Hockney’s art; and it’s also a great place to shop for art supplies, home décor and jewellery – all of which have been produced by local businesses.

Visit Bolling Hall

Dating back to the 14th century, Bolling Hall is one of the oldest places in all of Bradford, and was owned by the Bolling family. Today, it operates as a museum, which houses information and artefacts on the history of Bradford, and the English Civil War. It’s also rumoured that Bolling Hall is home to a ghost… but that’s neither been confirmed or denied!
