  • A beautiful part of this beautiful county. Lovely cafe at the top. Great to watch all the boats coming and going.
  • We went there on a lovely summer's day. Saw the locks in operation. Helpful volunteers who were keen to share their knowledge. The kids even got to ride on a narrow boat across 2 gates. Parking is not plentiful as the access is through a residential estate, I can imagine this being a problem on a busy weekend.
  • Fantastic part of British heritage. A marvel of our great British engineering. Well worth a visit
  • Fab views and good canal walk. Really interesting lock system. Cafe there too.
  • What a nice experience to do them. Something thought of many years ago and still works

Where to stay in Bradford

Hotel chains and less expensive accommodations populate the city center. Lodging is also scattered outside the center; however, a centralized location is safer and closer to the main attractions. A few B&Bs are hidden on the outskirts of the city and offer comfortable rooms in quiet neighborhoods.
