Car park and entrance free but a bit of a walk into the mill from parking. Not only World Heritage site but art exhibitions (David Hockney at present) three eating places, or five if you count the Roberts Park just over the river . In or out according to the weather but definitely a good day out.

Having been to Salts Mill on many occasions, we always find it a good place to visit. In addition to the new Hockney paintings, there are two large floors with a superb range of books for all ages and items for the creative mind as well as other quality 'home' products. There are now 3 cafes, 2 on the third... More

We had a lovely day out at salts mill which was slightly spoilt by the catering offered in the mill. Due to poor management and not the hard working staff, I would like to add. A large cafe on the 3rd floor, but only I waiter to serve all those people! He was run off his feet, it took 35... More

Second visit. Enjoyed the Hockney exhibition, good the it's free. Shops a bit disappointing, less interesting stock than last time. I didn't buy anything!! Lovely coffee but strudel was a cake which was a bit dry, not a pastry as expected.

Great place to spend a few hours browsing the bookshop,have lunch in the diner then finish off the day with a browse round one of the best antique shops in Yorkshire I've been to in a long time. Great friendly staff all round too. Go there!

Visited on the spur of the moment -hadn't been for many years. It's certainly a place to linger to look at the various paintings on display, the shops etc. At the moment the big attraction is Hockney's colourful Arrival of Spring collection which would cheer anyone up on a dismal day & was proving very popular, After taking our time...

What a wonderful place to spend a rainy Sunday- and it's open until 6pm whereas most places close at 4pm. You can still get wet walking from the car park to the entrance though. There are toilets as soon as you get in. A must before you spend hours browsing. ( there are other toilets on each floor ) The... More

Salts Mill is a beautiful piece of architecture still being used nearly 170 years after it was built. It is home to an electronics company and some other smaller companies buts it's main attraction is the fact that its 1853 Gallery is home to a large collection of David Hockney works. there are other galleries here and a large bookshop...

The mill was great - exhibitions brilliant and bookshop and art shop also excellent. But the cafe in the gallery needs to learn service tips from the others - food and coffee were great, service was not. Being asked (on a notice) to queue at the other end from where we'd entered and then finding that we'd do better sitting... More

The Salts mill is a tribute to One Mans vision of the future. You can see hiq many lives he touched. His ideas were way beyond the comprehension of his contemporary. I have visited the village many times and in summer times it is ideal for picnics and boat rides. Nearby you can also see the five locks
