The smell of the lillies, beautiful classical music, interesting displays and shops Salts Mill has something for everyone. You can enjoy spending nothing at all or ridiculous amounts on trendy kitchenware. Just enjoy!

We love this place and are frequent visitors. The building is lovely and the bookshop is one of our favourite places. The Salts Diner has some delicious food though a little pricey but it is very tasty!

I am lucky enough to live nearby and visit often. This is a fascinating village and in Titus Salt's day was a "dry" village no alcohol allowed. Titus Salt was the founder of the village and the history is told in the Mill museum, next to the David Hockney exhibition. A must visit!

Lovely building with several floors. There is a large book shop which also has Hockney's work on display, a floor of homeware, jewellery & outdoor clothing with some lovely items for sale (if pricey) and a super restaurant. There are occasional exhibitions as well. Well worth a visit and worthy of its heritage status. The surrounding village is also worth... More

The gallery that displays a variety of prints by David Hockney is well worth a visit and while there you can wander around the book shop, Home and maybe even visit the cafe. Though for the latter two you may need to re mortgage your house, they are definitely not cheap.

This restored mill retains many of its original features, has great shops, cafes and art exhibitions, together with a great collection of Leeds Ware. Light and airy, it has great views from the upper floors and good parking facilities. A relative from Berkshire told me, we have nothing like this, even in London.

Salts mill is interesting architecturally and has some great exhibitions. There's also opportunity to do some designer shopping should you want to indulge. Lovely restaurant too!
