You do not have to be a book worm to enjoy this place. This is a Waterstones book shop, located in a truly historic and visually impressive building (The Old Wool Exchange). Marble columns, vaulted ceiling, stone arches, just wonderful. If all this wasn't enough,...More

Very interesting building. I was taking as many pictures as I was looking at books. This is the old Wool Exchange and the woodwork and windows are awesome. The books are logically arranged and reasonable.

A must visit store when in Bradford, this Victorian Wool Exchange building is an architectural gem. Can't help but be impressed with the splendour of the interior, always spend way too much time there taking in the surroundings, buying books I didn't realise I needed.

This is now a bookshop but was once a wool trading hall. I went in the 1980s when wool was actively traded on the floor. One of Bradford's iconic buildings.
