Bradford's top attraction is the National Media Museum, an impressive glass-fronted building that chronicles the story of photography, film, TV, radio and the web from 19th-century cameras and early animation to digital technology and the psychology of advertising. There's lots of hands-on stuff, too. You can film yourself in a bedroom scene, pretend to be a TV newsreader, or play 1970s and '80s video games. The IMAX cinema here shows the usual combination of in-your-face nature films, space documentaries and 3D animations.

The museum looks out over City Park , Bradford's new central square, which is home to the Mirror Pool, the country's largest urban water feature.
