From its famed dark, satanic Victorian mills, to the stark economy of 1960s Brutalism, Bradford is full of architectural wonders whose walls tell stories of the city’s history.

Join George Sheeran, architectural historian at the University of Bradford, for a walking tour of Bradford’s architectural gems and a rare insight into the politics of landscape and urban environments.

Meet outside City Hall main entrance.

Be sure to wear appropriate footwear for a walk around the city, and come prepared to have your perceptions of buildings you might walk past every day altered forever.
