Visitors and residents alike can find out how to get the most out of the tourist attractions and the opportunities for days out in the Bradford district with a new suite of Visitor and Discover Guides produced by Bradford Council’s tourism service, Visit Bradford.

45,000 Visitor and Discover Guides have been printed and are being distributed throughout the UK in order to attract visitors to Bradford and district in 2019.

The 36 page Visitor Guide showcases what’s on offer in Bradford and highlights to visitors the exciting experiences around the district.

More in depth, individual Discover Guides are also available for Bradford City Centre, Haworth and Brontë Country, Ilkley and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire. Each one details the fabulous attractions, events, food and drink, heritage and culture the area has to offer.

Patricia Tillotson, Visitor and Business Development Manager at Bradford Council, said: “Our district is a fascinating place to visit and explore. We have seen year on year increases in the number of day trips and visits from overseas tourist which have boosted tourism in the district and led to a tourism industry worth an estimated £681 million to the district’s economy. We were also named ‘Emerging Destination of the Year 2018’ for Europe by the tourist bible The Luxury Travel Guide last year.

“There are loads of great events coming up this year right across the district, including the Yorkshire Games Festival at the National Science and Media Museum, the delightful Peter Rabbit exhibition at Cartwright Hall in May and the return of the Tour de Yorkshire. In September the Women’s Elite Road Race of the Yorkshire 2019 UCI Road World Championships will start in the city centre and the Men’s Elite Road Race will travel through the district.

“Our district is a great place for our residents, as well as regional, national and international visitors to spend their time and these new guides will help people to make the most of their visit.”
