The National Media Museum
This was my first visit, and I confess it has been on my 'must visit' list for a while. I was blown away. This is one of the country's best kept secrets! What a fabulous place. Good as the website might be, see here, it leaves the treasures therein waiting to be discovered, and lots of surprises. The National Media Museum is more than a 'museum'. I wanted especially to visit the photography galleries, and they did not disappoint - both the history of photography and the photographic equipment exhibits were excellent.
But so were the other floors. Nostalgia? You bet, lots of it! Helpful staff, and a superb cafe too.
A good day out then? One of the best. And I look forward to another visit to Bradford soon.
I came home a different way, via Bradford Interchange, Manchester Victoria, Wigan Wallgate, and the West Coast main line back to Lockerbie.
