Bradford District is home to some of the most exciting museums and galleries in Yorkshire. From the Baroque splendour of Cartwright Hall Art Gallery to the intimacy of Ilkley's Manor House Museum and Art Gallery, there is always something new to do or see, and admission is free!
Specialist museums like Bradford Industrial Museum and Keighley's Cliffe Castle Museum bring our District's history and heritage to life through ever-changing displays.
Bradford 1 Gallery is Bradford Council’s free city centre art gallery. The Gallery’s mission is to enrich people’s lives by providing opportunities to engage with quality contemporary art and to bring the work of artists with national and international reputations to the people of Bradford. Opened in October 2007, in a new building development in Centenary Square, the gallery is located opposite the town hall and alongside the city’s current major development project City Park: Mirror Pool Plaza
Our Education team run regular workshops and special events with schools and other groups, and will be delighted to help you make the most of your visit.
Many of the museums, galleries and community halls have rooms for hire for meetings and special events - some are even licensed for marriages!
Whether you are planning a visit for yourself or a group, pursuing academic research or looking for a unusual venue for your event, you'll find all the information you need right here.
