Sunny Summer days make for a perfect day out for a picnic. You can make picnics family-friendly or a nice date in the afternoon. There are some wonderful areas for picnics across the Bradford district and I’ve picked 3 of my favourite spots for a lazy afternoon enjoying a picnic and watching the world go by.

3 Top Picnic Spots in Bradford

Roberts Park, Saltaire

Situated in heart of the World Heritage Site in the village of Saltaire, Roberts Park is a perfect spot for a picnic by the river. Within the park, there is also a children’s play park, a cafe for any supplies you’ve forgotten and The Boathouse Pub at the other side of the river if you want a drink after your picnic has finished! There is a large grass area to settle down, play with the kids and take in the beautiful area of Saltaire.

Goit Stock, Cullingworth

If you’re looking for a little bit more adventure for your picnic you can walk to the Goit Stock Waterfall which makes the perfect backdrop for a picnic – It will look great on your Instagram feed. You can access the waterfall from either Harden or Cullingworth, you will have to walk to get there but it will be worth it. This is the perfect spot for a romantic afternoon!


Top Withens, Haworth

Want to take a walk and enjoy a picnic with a view? Head up to Top Withens outside of Haworth. Top Withens is an old Farmhouse in the heart of Bronte Country the home of the famed Bronte sisters. During summer pop down your picnic blanket and enjoy the scenery and take a well-deserved break from your walk before heading back down.

Picnics are a nice way to get outdoors on a sunny afternoon. There are so many other fantastic picnic spots across the Bradford district, especially when you are taking a walk and want a picnic with a view!
