GIRL ABOUT BRADFORD

 

I am from Bradford which is a wonderful city in the heart of West Yorkshire.  I was fortunate to have been born here, to parents who are also from Bradford so it’s safe to say it’s in my blood! I’ve lived here my whole life, went to the University of Bradford and have started multiple businesses based right here.  I live with my boyfriend, Keil – We met on a night out in the city 16 years ago.  From a vibrant and ever-changing city centre to the surrounding areas of the Aire Valley (where I live) to further afield, Bradford has so much to offer for visitors and locals too.  One of the things which continues to amaze me is you can go from the Victorian buildings of the city centre to within no time at all be out in the countryside. I am so proud to be a Bradford lass and it’s an honour to be the Girl About Bradford where I can help to share all the incredible things happening here to help anyone who comes to the Bradford district create some amazing memories.
