Bradford is a city located in West Yorkshire in the foothills of the Pennines and is approximately 9 miles to the west of Leeds and 15 miles to the north west of Wakefield. The city rose to prominence during the Industrial Revolution as an international centre of textile manufacture, particularly wool. The city's proximity to a supply of coal, iron ore and soft water facilitated the growth of Bradford's manufacturing base. Coupled with the increasing importance of its textile industry, Bradford's population exploded which in turn led to a rapid increase in investment in the city which is why the city has a large number of listed Victorian architecture including the grand Italiante City Hall.
The textile sector in Bradford fell into decline from the mid-20th century. Since this time, Bradford has emerged as a tourist destination, becoming the first UNESCO City of Film with attractions such as the National Media Museum, Bradford City Park, the Alhambra theatre and Cartwright Hall.
Forster Square Shopping Park opened in 1995 and is adjacent to the Forster Square Railway Station and includes over 20 large retail and food outlets. Bradford Forster Square railway station is one of two main line railway stations serving the city. The other is Bradford Interchange.
The historic university of Cambridge is located in the county of Cambridgeshire in the east of England. The city offers something for everyone. There is a wide choice of galleries showcasing a range of art from contemporary to the classic. There is also a lively theatre scene in the city offering drama, dance and family shows along with a wide variety of live music from internationally acclaimed orchestras to touring pop stars. The city also hosts the world famous Cambridge Folk Festival, the Beer Festival, the Big Weekend and the Secret Garden Party festival. For a more sedate way of spending time in the city why not go punting on the River Cam or take a picnic in the park. As well as the free University of Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum, which houses world-class collections of art and antiquities spanning centuries and civilisations, and Kettle’s Yard, one of the country’s finest galleries and a major centre for 20th century and contemporary art, visitors will find a wide range of artworks, sculpture trail walks and galleries to appreciate. King’s College Chapel is celebrated for its choral services including the famous A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols, broadcast live by the BBC to the nation and across the globe on Christmas Eve.
