Bradford is a city and the administrative centre of the City of Bradford district in West Yorkshire, England. The city is in the Pennines' eastern foothills and is built on the banks of the river Bradford Beck. Bradford had a population of 349,561 at the 2011 census; the second-largest population centre in the county after Leeds, which is 9 miles (14 km) to the east of the city. It shares a continuous built-up area with the towns of Shipley, Silsden, Bingley and Keighley in the district as well as with the metropolitan county's other districts. Its name is also given to Bradford Beck.

It became a West Riding of Yorkshire municipal borough in 1847 and received its city charter in 1897. Since local government reform in 1974, the city is the adminstrative centre of a wider metropolitan district, city hall is the meeting place of Bradford City Council. The district has civil parishes and unparished areas and had a population of 539,776, making it the 7th most populous district in England.

In the century leading up its city status, the 19th century, it was boomtown in international textile manufacture. It was one of the earliest industrialised settlements, rapidly becoming the "wool capital of the world"; this in turn gave rise to the nicknames "Woolopolis" and "Wool City". The area's access to supplies of coal, iron ore and soft water set off the growth of manufacturing which led to an explosion in population. From the mid-20th century, deindustrialisation lead to the textile sector and industrial base to decline (including poverty, unemployment and social unrest). The city's economy is the third largest in the Yorkshire and the Humber region, at around £10 billion, based on finance and manufacturing.
Tourism and media is also a part of the economy: it was the first UNESCO City of Film with attractions such as the National Science and Media Museum, Bradford City Park, the Alhambra theatre and Cartwright Hall. It is the UK City of Culture for 2025 having won the designation on 31 May 2022.
