Brilliant! The whole building and art gallery are wonderful. Both the salt cafe and the upper floor restaurant are excellent. (Try the hot chocolate in the Salt cafe - best ever tasted, in my opinion). Fantastic art bookshop and modern designer interiors shop. A day out in itself. Entrance is not well signposted though.

Although we had travelled in the area before this was our first visit. A planned flying visit turned into more than half a day.

Fantastic heritage site set in Shipley. A great story of one man's vision to build a village for the mill workers, this man being Sir Titus Salt. Beautiful setting, right next to the River Aire. A must visit village for anyone who is even remotely close to this area

Visited Saltaire last weekend with friends from Stockport. From Shipley Glen we took the Tramway down to Roberts Park then over the footbridge to Saltaire Village. This is such a beautiful place with so much history attached - to think one man Titus Salt built a Mill, a Church, aSchool and houses for all his workers in the Mill is... More

A quaint full size model village, lovely quaint shops and nice eateries, try the Boathouse for a delicious lunch or the aptly named don't tell Titus wine bar-brasserie, have a walk down to Roberts Park over the River for a picnic or have an ice cream from the ice cream narrow boat on the canal. There's something for everyone here.

This village was built to house the mill workers of Sir Titus Salt, it's fantastic. You can spend a whole day here, walking around the mill now renovated to house shops, a restaurant, an art gallery. The village is all stone cottages, cobble streets, little shops & cafés. An old church too by the riverside and a beautiful park opposite.... More
