BRADFORD - The Wool Exchange

The Wool Exchange in Bradford is a beautiful ornate Grade 1 listed building in the city centre, hidden by many large surrounding buildings. It is now better known for hosting Waterstones.

From the Urban Garden you get a wonderful view of its clock tower which holds the correct time.

Wool Exchange, Bradford

It was built in the 1860's as a wool-trading centre, the grandeur of the building shows Bradford's 19th century wealth in the trading of wool. It is great to see the building still in good use with its interior beauty restored, a good view of the inside architecture can be seen from the Starbucks cafe.
