Bradford Moor is an electoral ward in the City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council. It is in the BD3 postcode area.

The ward covers the areas of Bradford known as Bradford Moor, Laisterdyke and Thornbury. It is bordered on the west by Barkerend and the south by Bowling (both part of the same ward); on the north side is Eccleshill ward and on the east is the Pudsey area of Leeds. The direct route between the centres of Bradford and Leeds passes through the middle of the ward.

Bradford Moor was originally a moor, as the name suggests. Despite being near the centre of Bradford, it was urbanised relatively late in the city's history, but is now inner-city in character.
