Take a stroll down Little Germany which was home to many German Jewish merchants in the late 1850s. See 85 wonderful Victorian buildings in this area where merchants spent large sums of money constructing warehouses for storage and the sale of their goods.

Little Germany is still one of Bradford’s busiest commercial areas and each year it attracts thousands of visitors who admire and appreciate the original distinctive architecture of the buildings.

You will also see a mural on the back of the Bradford Playhouse which commemorates the founding of the Independent Labour Party back in 1893. There are plenty of informative plaques dotted around the site that will give you an insight into the history of the merchants and the area.

Interestingly, some of the buildings were used in film productions such as ‘The Syndicate’ and ‘A is for Acid’. Little Germany is really worth visiting as you will get a real sense of how things were back in the Victorian era.
