Bradford is located in West Yorkshire in the north of England and in 1897 it received its charter as a city. During the 19th century, Bradford gained further prominence as an international centre of textile manufacturing, and, more specifically, wool. Later, in the mid-20th century, the textile sector in Bradford deteriorated. Ever since, the city has begun to thrive as a tourist hotspot and is now the UNESCO City of Film.
However, as with many other areas of northern England, Bradford has suffered at the hands of housing problems and economic adversity. With Samuel Lister at the forefront, new textile technologies were invented in the city, though Lister’s Mill is no longer used for textile production. The city is bustling with references to its history, museums and galleries and its general architecture means that Bradford is a city just waiting to be explored.
