We were visiting the area to see a production at the Alhambra,Bradford but wished to make the most of our trip to the area. Saltaire and Salt's Mill provided the ideal opportunity to learn a bit more about the historical aspects of industrialisation in West Yorkshire. The purpose built village which helped inspire the 20thcentury Garden Cities concept is dominated... More

Definitely worth a visit if your in this area. We had a lovely morning stroll by the canal, enjoyed a bacon sandwich and a coffee from the barge, had a mooch round the lovely local shops in the Salt Mill, especially the book floor. Our daughter had great fun at the little park, the sun was shining, it was a... More

It's worth having a wander round the old streets & back to backs to imagine all the mill workers who would once have lived there & gaze at the impressive buildings of Sir Titus Salt. T here is a train station right next to the mill with nearby distinctive shops, pub by the river & boat trip in simmer.

Primarily, this, for me was a trip into the past as I worked at the mill in the late sixties. The scale of the ambition behind Titus Salt's idea continues to amaze me; that mill, after all, was built to last a thousand years, but it closed after only a hundred and thirty - or thereabouts. Solidity, imagination, dignity are... More

Saltaire a village surrounded with nature humble and kind people. I visited the village twice and both the times I visited it with my college classmates. Nature is key towards art and to start off with small ideas we setted off to this village. This village is such a beautiful place to be. I would highly recommend inbound and domestic... More

I worked in the centre of Saltaire Village for 7 years - at Shipley College from 2007 until 2014. The village is beautiful and it was a privilege to work in such amazing surroundings. I often took myself off to Salts Mill at lunchtimes to look at the art collection and to get some unusual presents in the shopping area... More

Interesting historically and architecturally, although the pavements are rather rough, so take care.

We Luve locally and visited today, partly to go to the Mill to see the latest Hockney exhibition and partly to survey the village now that the trees have been felled. They had been causing pavement damage. I am the first person to love trees but though I was terribly sad to know they had to go, the main road... More
