Worth a visit just to just to see how over rated some art can be. The last time i walked around somewhere shaking my head in disbelief (and laughing out loud )was the museum of modern art in Bilbao. How can anyone in their right mind pay money for what is essentially childish art?. The mill itself is worth a... More

This is a successful conversion from industrial to creative space. Not only is there art, but there are areas you can sit and write or just look at the art; there are art supplies for sale - this isn't a stale museum atsmosphere, it encourages creativity. Wonderful shops, great design.

Plenty to see, buy and eat, the choice of cafes was very good, with a group of people with various disabilities the mills were easily accessed

The setting is in old mills, car park was quite a distance away & not signposted very well. The David Hockney exhibition was not to our taste but some will find it very good. The shops were very expensive but there were items you would not find elsewhere and the restaurant was also expensive but where it is there was... More

I visited Salts Mill with a local friend; a very interesting experience as the old mill has been brought up to date with many good features such as Hockney art, etc. We also enjoyed a lunch at the café/restaurant at a reasonable price.

I only ever come to Salts Mill for tea and cake, although there is always a wide variety of savoury food on offer. I tend to find the meal options a little more pricey so go for the cheaper tea and cake. The setting is lovely and the staff are always polite and quick to prepare the orders.

Salts Mill is a wonderful, old historical place that has been given a second lease of life with its shops, cafe and diner. We regularly go for a bite to eat and walk around on wet Sundays with the kids. We enjoy eating in the diner, the specials and cakes are always really good, child portions or meals would be... More

Ate in the diner here which was buzzing and food was good quality. Really enjoyed the atmosphere of the building, which once housed the workforce of the mill but is now an arts centre. Some very upmarket shops within the buildings but plenty to look at, including the David Hockney gallery on the top floor. Well worth visiting.

Large converted mill complex with various artistically displayed books, art, kitchen items and in the basement Zeba selling wonderful textiles, Persian type rugs etc. The large cafe has terrible acoustics and it was so noisy we didn't end the visit with a cup of something. The serving staff make such a scraping noise when dragging chairs back under it was... More
