Places to visit

Guzelian Café Bar & Gallery
Yorkshire-based Guzelian has been supplying editorial photography to quality-minded customers – from businesses, to newspapers, to big banks – since 1986. On the walls at the Guzelian Cafe Bar & gallery you will find stunning photographic prints from the Guzelian news agency.

Saltaire United Reformed Church
The Church was built by Sir Titus Salt in 1859 to serve his staff who worked at the Mill within the village of Saltaire, now a world heritage site. The building is a unique example of Italianate religious architecture. The entrance is up six steps under a portico supported by six unfluted Corinthian columns and topped by a fretted tower with a cupola. Inside are hollow Corinthian columns with beautiful Scagliola exteriors, fashioned by Italian craftsmen.

Bradford Cathedral
Bradford’s beautiful Cathedral is a hidden jewel waiting to be discovered. Set in tranquil gardens where once battle raged, the Cathedral is alive with a sense of story from its 13 centuries at the heart of Bradford. This, the third church on the site, is 500 years old, with 20th century additions. Bradford’s most ancient place of worship is friendly, peaceful and fascinating, with many special features.
