Bradford Walking Tour 3
These photos were also taken from the roof of the Broadway shopping centre, looking across the city of Bradford towards the west. You can see, from left to right: the dome of Britannia House, owned by Bradford Council; the 1960s tower block that holds student accommodation and the ice rink. Standing proudly, the ornate tower of Bradford's City Hall, built in 1873 when the city wanted to make a statement about its wealth and status. Towards the right, in the distance, a new multi-coloured block, the David Hockney building, part of Bradford College. On the right edge is a tall office block dating back to the 1970s that now forms part of the Broadway complex.
On the other side of that block you get a glimpse of the beautiful Victorian Gothic Wool Exchange building, completed in the 1860s and now rather dwarfed by the structures around it.
