If you like Victorian buildings and architecture this city has the highest concentration of Victorian buildings in one city outside London. Historically part of the West Riding of Yorkshire, Bradford rose to prominence in the 19th century as an international centre of textile manufacture, particularly wool. It was a boomtown of the Industrial Revolution, and amongst the earliest industrialised settlements, rapidly becoming the "wool capital of the world". It houses the Industrial museum, National photography museum and Cartwright Hall houses a gallery museum of local artist David Hockney
