Bradford – it may not be the city that comes to everyone’s mind first as the greatest place in the UK.
But those of us who were born and raised there, or discovered it later in life, know it has a surprising amount to offer.

David Hockney, the Bronte sisters, JB Priestley and Frederick Delius all hailed from Bradford, as does Dynamo and only One Direction’s Zayn Malik. It must be something in the Yorkshire Water.
2. Bradford invented school dinners
