Art and more art. Books and art materials. Antiques and collectables and a wonderful mill with history. Then wander to the village for interesting architecture a bacon butty and a canal walk. The church is fascinating too. All free to visit and with free parking.

Only good thing was the architecture of the building. The shops inside were poor and not laid out well with no flow. Such a shame as the building is beautiful.

This is an amazing place to visit. Both from an historic and from a present day viewpoint. Interesting exhibition on history of Saltaire. Great book shop and the art galleries are interesting. Needs a few hours to do properly.

Thank goodness this site and it's buildings have been preserved for future generations to enjoy . Whilst built as a place of labour it is now mainly a tourist attraction that is quite unique and houses the 1853 gallery exhibiting the art of David Hockney a "local lad" made good! Well worth a visit!!

I meet up with a friend for lunch every couples of months and we love the atmosphere and the food. It's always excellent service and wonderful food. You need to go early, no later than 11:30 am to get a seat.

Lovely historic Saltaire is a beautifully preserved Victorian model village. The mill built by Titus Salt has been converted to a space for art - notably David Hockney - and interesting art and bookshops. Fascinating to look around - by the canal, the park, the various public buildings and the built got the mill workers. Unique.

Set in Saltaire, the mill has been turned into a museum/ art gallery, with shops and stalls selling quirky items. Numerous Hockney works of art adorn the walls, and even the menu in the cafe is Hockney designed. Definitely worth a visit to learn some of the history of Saltaire
