Bradford Industrial Museum
This museum is housed in a fully functional spinning mill and is located just off Harrogate Road. It is a real treasure and an excellent opportunity to rethink Bradford’s industrial past. Hear the clicks and clicks of machines at work and learn about the practices that made Bradford one of the most important places in the country. The textile gallery has also been recently renovated on the first floor and is now really attractive and welcoming. If you have children, they even have the possibility of riding in a carriage!
You can only catch Mela at certain times of the year, usually in early summer. In its time, it was the largest Mela in Europe, and it would attract more than 100,000 people this weekend. You can jump from stage to stage and absorb all the spectacular bhangra bands.

You can watch a family movie for around £ 1, and these screenings are fun and relaxed, so you don’t have to worry about your kids set up. Family shows welcome children of all ages and other parents are likely to struggle with the same problems!

This is the only park. But it’s beautiful and you can easily spend an afternoon picnic on a nice summer day. Why don’t you buy ice from the ship? Don’t forget to bring a loaf of bread to feed the many ducks, geese and swans that live there. The Leeds-Liverpool Canal also runs through the park and is a wonderful walk if you have a few hours off. If you are there with the family, there is also an excellent play area to keep the children occupied.
