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.
