Having fond memories from my childhood about Salts mill we decided to go back for a Sunday afternoon. The book shop is good, but there were shops that are extremely expensive for your average person. Also we kept wandering round in circles, going through unmarked doors and couldn't seem to find some of the shops. Better signs would maybe help.

If you are expecting high street stores and a museum this is not the place for you. Lovely shops, relaxing cafes, and the Hockney exhibit - Disney world it's not but makes the most of the mill and the surrounding village - parks, pubs, the river/ canal, boat rides, walks, restaurants w loads of different events.

Just stands selling overpriced goods. Was hoping for stands showing the past. Hope they improve it - they are missing a trick

Nice place to visit for a day out if it's good weather. Easy access with parking/train station. A good restaurant is there.

Was not sure what to expect. Visited with friends. There was a floor with artwork, a floor selling books. A floor selling items for the home. Handmade jewellery. A floor with a large cafe, a second hand area. An area people selling outdoor clothing. Overall a mixed bunch of things to see. The best bit was watching a video on... More

I've been visiting Salt's Mill for years; there is so much of interest there. Galleries, unusual shopping, cafes. Wonderful asset to Bradford.

Great David Hockney exhibition and superb home shop on first floor! Worth a wander through and see how this beautiful building has been bought back to life!

Because Salts Mill is on my doorstep I tend to take it for granted. But it is soooo good to go to! Great to browse around, have a meal/drink and to find something different. I love Saltaire and I am very proud of it :-)

Last visited this place 10 years ago it having been the venue for our first date over 20 years ago now! It continues to be excellent, particularly if you are a fan of David Hockney's work but also even if you aren't (but you should be as he's great). The gift shop and book shop are both excellent with a... More
