The Mills have been very tastefully refurbished with exhibitions depicting the harsh reality of life during the industrial revolution. Titus Salt was an inspirational man. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Overpriced school food in a dining area that has plastic chairs and tables. No idea why it's so busy, but it seems to be the place where people take their parents for a bit of lunch because it's Salts Mill. The end.

This building has a fantastic history together with the surrounding area yet nothing is made of this. It's just a shopping and eating mall in a stunning building.

The website should have given me a clue. The website is one of the worst I've ever come a across, repeating the same uninformative sentences over and over again. I understood from it (I think) that the 3rd Floor would be closed on Monday and Tuesday but the 1853 gallery ‘which holds the largest collection of David Hockney paintings’ was... More

This is well worth a visit, in fact the whole of Saltaire is worth a visit. Visitors from overseas should find this a charming slice of 19th century England. The mill houses a David Hockney exhibition and there are some nice pubs and cafes in the area. The mill sits aside the canal which allows a peaceful and charming walk.

Great place to visit, but check opening times to avoid disappointment. Hockney exhibition worth the time. Take a packed lunch as cafe can be expensive.

A wonderful trip for an autumn day, the whole of Saltair is worthy of a visit but Salts Mill is of course the centre piece

Had a family day out, probably wrong day, Mothers day. It was so full of pretentious people. Told I could;t take a picture of my daughter in the 3rd floor over priced old tat furniture floor..no photographs allowed(go figure that out ) Not impressed with the David Hockney exhibition . A 3 year old could paint better.

What a great day out- especially if it is raining!!! Good food available in a cafe style and a restaurant but sadly no time to test this area. Have wanted to see David Hockney works for some time an this was a VERY pleasant surprise. Did not think I would like as much as I did. The iPad gallery exhibition... More
