ATTRACTIONS across Keighley and the Worth Valley are being showcased as part of an initiative promoting short breaks in the Bradford district.

Members of the council's VisitBradford tourism team have launched a 'micro website', at

It features a wide range of places to see and visit, covering everything from culture, literature, art and heritage to eating out and enjoying the outdoors.

Visitors to the website are greeted first with a photo of Top Withens, the ruined farmhouse on the moors above Haworth which was reputedly the inspiration for the setting of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights.

And the site includes a page specifically devoted to short breaks in Haworth.

Councillor Sarah Ferriby, Bradford Council’s executive member for healthy people and places, says: "On this new Stay and Explore micro-site we’ve created a selection of itineraries to highlight some of the amazing places, activities and entertainment people can experience on a visit to the Bradford district.

"From a gastronomic adventure to finding Instagram-ready spots or unravelling Bradford’s textile heritage, from theatre breaks to experiencing the art, heritage and wonderful countryside of the district, the site highlights the great destinations we have across the area. There is so much to do, it makes sense for people to stay a few nights or even longer.

"Literary fans can delight in a trip to the home of the Brontes at Haworth and the moors surrounding the world-famous village. Art lovers can discover a myriad of masterpieces by the UK’s greatest living artist David Hockney at Salts Mill in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire as well as at Cartwright Hall, which also hosts works by many other famous artists.

"Bradford is well known for its curries and has been declared the Curry Capital of Britain six times over, with the district’s numerous exceptional restaurants regularly winning awards, and the area is also home to excellent breweries.

"For those who like to explore the great outdoors, the website has suggested itineraries for walking and cycling including discovering the Five Rise Locks on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal at Bingley, the Cow and Calf Rocks on Ilkley Moor, and Shipley Glen.

"If history is your thing then you can steam into the past with a trip on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway, and discover the district’s heritage at Bradford Industrial Museum, Cliffe Castle, East Riddlesden Hall, Bolling Hall and the Manor House at Ilkley."
