The City of Bradford Metropolitan District is a metropolitan borough in West Yorkshire, England. It is named after its largest settlement, the city of Bradford.

Places within the borough boundaries (in addition to the Bradford city area itself) include Addingham, Baildon, Bingley, Burley in Wharfedale, Cottingley, Cullingworth, Denholme, Haworth, Ilkley, Keighley, Manningham, Menston, Oakworth, Oxenhope, Queensbury, Saltaire, Shipley, Silsden, Steeton with Eastburn, Thornton and Wilsden.

The northern and western parts of the district are largely rural, with areas of high moorland including the famous Ilkley Moor and Brontë Country.

The current borough boundaries date from April 1, 1974, when the county borough of Bradford was merged with the borough of Keighley, the urban districts of Baildon, Bingley, Denholme, Ilkley, Shipley and Silsden, along with part of Queensbury and Shelf urban district and part of Skipton Rural District.
