There are many great things about the UK that tourists, students and citizens are drawn to. In 2015, roughly 36 million people visited the UK alone and with Brexit on the lips of many, the UK has become even more attractive with the fall of the value of the pound. But even though there are 31 UNESCO sites in the UK and British territories, top universities such as Oxford and Cambridge and numerous museums and other cultural attractions, there are many flaws in the UK. One thing in particular that the UK gets a bad rap for is their rudeness, specifically in these 6 areas.
Bradford, located in West Yorkshire, has many great things going for it. Visitors can spend a few hours at the National Media Museum and then head to the Alhambra Theatre to see The Lion King or War Horse. For those that are more into food and drink, Bradford has a great craft beer scene in the North Parade area and was named the Curry Capital of the UK for 3 years in a row.
But there are a few things to keep in mind though that might put a damper on your visit. This area was ranked as the top place that most UK citizens feel at risk with 42% of respondents in the YouGov poll saying they thought it was unsafe. This may be due to the drug dealers and alcoholics that are floating around which may be related to the high number of unemployment (35%). Either way, it might not be the most restful place to take a holiday.
