There are so many attractions in West Yorkshire that for visitors their only problem is fitting in all the best ones during a single break! Fortunately, there are plenty of accommodation options, so you can come back time and time again. Whether you're interested in trekking across Ilkley Moor, white-water rafting in the foothills of the Pennines or exploring a great city like Leeds or Bradford, there are hotels in West Yorkshire of every description to stay at while you do so. The county is particularly well stocked with museums and art galleries, in which the county's industrial heritage often plays a prominent role. Any stay in West Yorkshire's great city of Bradford would not be complete without a visit to the Colour Museum, which offers a fabulous insight into the magical world of colour in all its aspects.
West Yorkshire Hotels for the Colour Museum
The Colour Museum in Bradford was opened by professor and TV personality Magnus Pike in 1978. It is a venue dedicated to colour in all its manifestations and is a hugely popular destination with tourists. In 2007 it became the Colour Experience and underwent an extensive renovation and re-launch to bring it in line with more recent educational developments. Because of the emphasis on educational needs, the Colour Museum is not now open to the general public, but it makes a great destination for families during the school holidays, especially if you're staying at a nearby Bradford hotel or B&B.
Visit the Bradford Colour Museum with West Yorkshire Hotels
Before you pay a visit to the Colour Museum you'll have to book in advance, whether you're visiting as a family or a group. The interactive Colour Experience gallery is one of the museum's highlights, which all ages of learners will enjoy as they play around with the equipment and see the effects for themselves. There is a full range of learning programmes on offer during the academic year, but even if you're just passing through or staying for a few days at a neighbouring West Yorkshire hotel you'll have plenty to see here as long as you pre-book. Whether you're interested in textiles, colour or light itself, the Colour Museum is the place to come.
