This is an attraction targeted at art-lovers, book-lovers and browsers with a bit of money. All the wares on sale are quality items, and there are no key-rings, fluffy toys, etc. This huge mill, formerly a textile factory in a Victorian "model" village (like Port Sunlight, Styal, Bournville, New Earswick) is given over to books and art materials, antiques, jewellery,...

If you decide to visit Saltaire make sure you partake in the 'Salts Walks and Talks' guided tour. Our guide Maria, (dressed in 19th century costume down to the ankle length bloomers), was a font of knowledge of Titus Salt and the village of Saltaire. Maria is a 'natural' performer and keeps you completely absorbed with facts, figures and details... More

We decided to stop here on the way back from a family party in Yorkshire and glad we did with a variety of things there to look at, but for us it was the art gallery and shop that will make us go back. Well we need another Hockney to go with the one we got that day!

Well worth a visit to see the David Hockney exhibition and other floors to explore. The book shop has a wonderful atmosphere.

Let's be honest, when you visity an art gallery or museum you're hard pressed to find a decent cuppa and a savoury snack. Not so at Salts Mill, where the upper floor diner attracts foodies in its own right. A great place to eat, lovely food, surrounded by original Hockney art... what more can you ask for?

Very impressive site the fantastic Hockney Gallery is worth the visit alone, loads to see and do. Take a walk around Saltaire Village as well. Nice shops and Cafe's. Roberts Park and a walk along the canal is lovely and relaxing too. And all this with no charges for parking or admission.

I have eaten at Salt's on many occasions. More often than not its just been for a coffee and piece of cake. Both are usually OK, but not amazing. If you are having a mooch around the mill and fancy a break its worth stopping off. The unique setting inside the mill is always enjoyed by people visiting for the... More

Salts Mill is a real treat for all the family, the History boards and story of the mills history on the tiop floor is well worth a visit. The lower floors have been utilised in a variety of ways and are worth a stroll around. The mill is at the heart of Saltaire and this world heritage site is well... More
