  • Roberts park is one of my favorite local places which we visit regularly. It is where events are held seasonally. It has great history along with the surrounding area of salts mill and saltaire village. Beautiful gardens well kept and has a large play area for children. A must visit if you are in the area
  • The park belonging to the village of Saltaire. It has a busy but good children's adventure playground complete with scooter/skateboard ramps, zip line and of course the obligatory ice-cream van. It also has an impressive wharf, a cricket pavilion, bandstand and a stylish little cafe.
  • This is a hidden gem. It's beautiful with the canal and river so close you could spend the whole day here. There is also a very nice cafe in the centre of the park
  • A well-kept and generally-clean, popular park. All the usual contrasts and compromises of any society in miniature: people wanting peace and quiet/teenagers playing music on their phones; people lounging around on the grass or picnicing/people playing team games; cricket ground in regular use/dogs off the leash with a need to chase any ball... all life is here. It has free performances at the bandstand on Sunday afternoons. We were there for a free (but contributions encouraged) performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream by Saltaire Shakespeare, which was superb.
  • Nice park, live entertainment for events. A lovely little bar for lunch.

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.
