A passport is necessary to gain entry to England and visitors staying longer than six months must also obtain a visa. Beyond this, planning a trip to Bradford in West Yorkshire is a piece of cake (or would that be crumpet?)
Leeds Bradford International Airport (LBA) will hit the bull's eye if you're traveling to Bradford by air. From here, you can connect with train, taxi, or bus services to get you to your precise destination. MetroConnect 737 operates a ground bus and air bus service and both are in operation every half hour throughout the week. This service has access to the National Rail Network at the Leeds Interchange Station and the Leeds City Bus Station. From here you can access the Bradford Exchange Interchange, where you can continue on to Bradford by rail or bus.
If you're arriving by land, say, in a rental car, man roads lead to Bradford, including the A650 between Wakefield and Skipton, the A647 from Leeds, the A658 from Harrogate, and the A6036 from Halifax. At one time, the city operated transport-by-canal, connecting Bradford with North Yorkshire, England's east coast, and many industrial towns on both sides of the Pennines Mountain Range. Opened in 1774, operations finally closed down in 1922, but there are many hopeful plans to rebuild it in the future.
