Discover the Outdoors

Bradford & district there's plenty of space to have fun. Put on your bobble hat and scarf and go on a walk, ake in the classic sights of the Cow and Calf rocks in Ilkley, and the Top Withens near Haworth, or find a new place to explore along the Millennium Way.  At any time of year, woodlands can be especially magical, from Judy Woods to Bingley's St. Ives Estate Country Park, where you'll find intriguing wood carvings and a lovely quiet space. A visit to our Green flag award parks are a great place to enjoy the fresh air, reconnect with nature, and to play. Discover 'art in the park' and the majestic Cartwright Hall in Lister Park, or visit the fascinating Cliffe Castle Museum and Park, which has a small woodland, play area, aviary, glass house, and water features!

Explore some of Bradford's most beautiful landscapes while walking, jogging, or cycling; there are many maps and routes to choose from; get ideas on this webpage. Share your favourites with us on social media #VisitBradford.

When you are in the countryside, act responsibly and respect local environment, people and animals, follow the Countryside Code. #RespectProtectEnjoy
