In fairness, it actually does have a nice town hall. Alongside some other Victorian architecture.

It's one of those places that quickly rose up to become a bustling centre of industry during the industrial revolution, but never really recovered after the country's industrial decline. Northern England is littered with places like that, similar to the rust belt in the Midwest. Although a handful of places did manage to reinvent themselves and remain vibrant. Manchester is a good example.

It's sunny too. I saw the sun only once when I was in Tokyo last October. Bradford wins in that category too .

Bradford. How anyone could choose a peasant city like Tokyo over the amazing Bradford is anyone's guess.
