Bradford museum is voted third best attraction

First published in News Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Photograph of the Author by , Bradford Chief Reporter

Bradford’s National Media Museum has been voted the best indoor attraction in Yorkshire.

It also ranked third overall in the poll to find Yorkshire’s Most Magnificent Attraction only beaten by Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

More than 4,000 people voted for their favourite destination at yorkshireattractions.org.

The accolade is more impressive because this is the first year the awards have been given.

Voters had up to 100 Yorkshire destinations to choose from including Newby Hall and Gardens and The Deep in Hull.

Colin Philpott, director of the Media Museum, said that he was delighted that it was the highest-placed indoor attraction in the poll.

The photography museum is great.

Didn't Bradford's range of indoor illegal shisha lounges apply?

I don't understand why it's more impressive because it's the first year the awards have been made. I've never even heard of the Yorkshire Wildlife Park! Surely this isn't more spin from the council's propaganda department (aka the T&A)

@ Clowny - I think if you did research the Pasha lounge is probably one of the only legal shisha lounge in Bradford!

The National Media Museum isn't a Bradford Council museum, so it isn't Council propaganda.
I'm not saying the the T&A's assertion that it is 'more impressive' isn't silly though!

If this is going on under our noses why don't the T&A flag it up. If as a country we can't smoke indoors then why protect those flouting the law?

In Bradford, if a citizen knows of illegal activity then rather than going through official channels, he or she will hijack an unrelated story on a website.

I think we can take it as read when shisha lounges advertise, have websites and YouTube videos that the “official channels” know what’s going on and decide not to act.
.
If the information is in the public domain it might as well be talked about the link to this story was “best indoor attraction” I just figured I’d throw a different spin on Bradford’s potential indoor attractions.

I didn't say it was legal to smoke indoors, I said that the Pasha lounge was one of the only LEGAL shisha lounges. My understanding the smoking regulations is that you can't smoke in a space which is more than 50% enclosed (This relates to the walls or other enclosing structures such as railings or fences).

The Pasha Lounge built an extension which is open on two sides and so complies with the smoking regs.

The rules are that you will need to make sure that the area is neither ‘enclosed’ nor ‘substantially enclosed’.
.
This means that it either has to have no roof, or if it does have a roof, then it can have no more than 50 per cent walls supporting it.
.
It's look more than 50% and it also looks like the area that isn't part of the canopy is also in use for smoking.
.
Pubs have had far less enclosed shelters than Pasha's rejected.

Shisha lounges and similar businesses where smoking is the focus of activity can obtain special permits allowing smoking.

Really? Well the one near City Hall was repeatedly raided before being closed down and there have been others raided (bottom of Ivegate for example).

Again you are posting mis-information, that "permit" information is from Wikipedia and doesn't apply to the United Kingdom.
.
The Legislation is the Health Act 2006:
http://www.legislati
on.gov.uk/ukpga/2006
/28/section/2
.
MPs have already begun to raise concerns about shisha violations of this act:

.
Premises will be considered ‘substantially enclosed’ if they have a ceiling or roof, but have an opening in the walls, which is less than half the total area of the walls.
.
The area of the opening does **not** include doors, windows or any other fittings that can be opened or shut.
