The most interesting part of the mill was the history and how Titas Salt built the village for the workers. I missed the David Hockney exhibition as it said it was closed on Monday & Tuesday at the stair end of the mill but later discovered should have gone in the lift but it was too late as finished at...

What a fantastic building, but such a shame they can't find something better to do with it. It'd make a fantastic museum of the industrial age, but instead, it has an art gallery (Hockney) on the ground floor, a rug shop in the basement, and restaurants and home fittings shop upstairs. I loved the building, but had little interest in... More

A former mill converted into one of the most brilliant cultural centres I've ever seen, combining a permanent exhibition by Hockney with a great art gallery, bookshop and cafe.

Salts mill fantastic old mill, which is very rare to find these days as most have been burnt down. Large areas of the mill appear to not be in used, poor sign-age to shopping area which is only on the second floor and seams to be disjointed some how. On entering the second floor your straight into a cafe. Where... More

An interesting Building which is well worth visiting. The ground floor is mainly devoted to David Hockney paintings and ceramics. The top floor is mainly devoted to the history of the mill - extremely interesting. Mill originally build by Titas Salt, who completely improved the working and living conditions for his workers and working conditions through the building of Saltaire.

Lovely well kept village area which leads down to the River Aire. At the bottom of the streets is a large mill with diverse shopping areas, art gallery and small independent stalls. There are cafes dotted around the village main street also one in the mill itself. The pub at the bottom of the street was the original boathouse which... More

Fabulous history, what a man he was. Great exhibition of Hockneys work.Would have liked to have seen more of the textiles that were made there. Watch the film that runs all day. Antique shop is great and the cafe very reasonable

If you visit Saltaire village a visit into the mill is well worth the time and little trouble. The bookshop, Hockney picture gallery, and assorted classy outlets are all interesting. If you use the staircase, take time to reflect on how many cloggs it has taken to wear down the steps. Take time also to look at the construction of... More

Well worth popping in to see the building but more especially to see the David Hockney exhibitions. Do this after you have walked around the village. Good bookshop if that is your thing.
