Property to rent in Bradford: Five of the best available now
Sat in the foothills of the Pennines, if you're after bundles of culture, a great location for transport and Britain's best curry, Bradford is the place for you.

The city's proximity to Leeds and Manchester makes it highly sought-after as a base for commuters, but superb schools and a great quality of life mean Bradford is just as popular with families, too.

And the city doesn't slacken off when it comes to great properties either.

City renters get to choose from Victorian conversions and stone-built terraces, as well as contemporary new-build apartments, while those looking to the suburbs can pick from large post-war semi-detached houses and stone-built cottages.

But what can you get for your monthly rent?

Let's take a look at five of the best homes to rent in Bradford right now.
