A Day in… Bradford

Dec 23rd, 2010 | By

At tourist offices you can pick up a brochure called “Great Days Out.” The inside talks of welcoming you to Yorkshire’s greatest attractions. But Bradford isn’t there. Do the publishers, who I’m guessing are Welcome to Yorkshire, not believe that there is enough in Bradford to justify a whole day there? Is this booklet just an advertising pamphlet and Bradford chose not to spend money on it? I don’t know the answer. What I do know is that whatever you think you know about the city, it is definitely worth a day trip.

The hotel chain, Jurys, has polled 4,000 Britons to see what they thought were the most unwelcoming cities in the UK. It will probably come as no surprise to you that London was considered to have the worst customer service. People also thought that the locals were ruder than other places. A third regularly didn’t say thank you and over half failed to smile at passers-by. Jurys concluded that this didn’t augur well for us when tourists visit us en masse for the Olympics in 2012.
Is all this a fair accusation at London or indeed, the next most unwelcoming cities of Glasgow, Bradford, Birmingham or Liverpool
