The city of Bradford's oldest building is its cathedral where the oldest parts of the cathedral date back to 1458. It is one of only a few medieval buildings in Bradford that still remain. One other is Bolling Hall which is currently being used as a museum and education centre. Examples of architecture from the Victorian era, apart from the many mills in and around the city, include the City Hall, the former wool exchange and the Victorian cemetery at Undercliffe. A fine example of a Victorian commercial district can be found at Little Germany which is located just to the east of the city centre. The area takes its name from the 19th century German Jewish immigrants who ran their businesses from buildings in the area. Buildings in Little Germany have been renovated and converted into luxury apartments. These include Paper Hall and Eastbrook Hall.
The city also has The St George's Hall which is a grand concert hall built in 1853 which makes it the oldest concert hall in the United Kingdom and the third oldest in Europe.
Bradford is also a green city with the city and surrounding area having 37 parks and gardens. Lister Park, voted Britain's Best Park in 2006 has a boating lake and Mughal Water Gardens.
Located in West Yorkshire, the city of Leeds is the largest city in the county and is an attractive city with Georgian, Victorian, 20th and 21st century architecture to enjoy. There are many museums, cafes, restaurants and theatres to visit. Leeds is within easy reach of the Yorkshire Dales, the Yorkshire Moors and the Peak District. In the centre of Leeds is the main shopping area which is a roughly half mile square between The Headrow, Vicar Lane, Boar Lane and Park Row. The main shopping street is the broad and bustling Briggate where many flagship stores can be found, including Harvey Nichols and House of Fraser.
Centred on the massive dome of the Corn Exchange, the Exchange Quarter is the centre of Leeds' bohemian life, with one-off boutiques, funky cafés and piercing parlours filling its pretty cobbled streets. It is becoming increasingly chic with a wide range of upscale bars and stylish restaurants, particularly on Call Lane.
The main tourist information office for the city is in the railway station, but there are various other information points across the city (e.g. Central Lending Library, The Headrow).
