All of this is good. Explore, marvel and enjoy! The 1863 gallery especially and the businesses in Salt's Mill especially deserve a visit.

Finally stopped here to have a look around. Amazingly beautiful buildings all built for the workers of the time. How generous their boss must have been. Fascinating facts can be read around the village. Would have stayed longer but it was very cold. Parking is the worst problem about this village- it is so popular it gets full early on,... More

Just on the outskirts of Bradford the village has quite an upmarket feel with good privately owned shops along its Main Street Very different feel to it's large city neighbour

Very interesting to walk around, beautifully preserved. Once you’ve been round it, pop in to the Visitor Centre, which is close to Salts Mill - you might be surprised. In addition to Salts Mill, there’s Robert’s Park, the Rive Aire, and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal right there. There’s also an old church across the road, which is grade 1... More

Saltaire Village and the Museum are super examples of philanthropic entrepreneurship of the 18/19th century. Not only can one see our industrial heritage excellently shown but it provides a huge space for art exhibitions. When we visited there was a Hockney exhibition plus many other art works. I particularly enjoyed the exhibition of Chinese vases an other pottery There is... More

The old Mill building is perfectly preserved, and now houses a mix of exhibitions, art and retail outlets, all of which are tastefully and informatively done. The original mill workers village is still there for you to explore, and the church adjacent to the mill is beautiful and full of history - if you get the chance, try to see... More

It was a very simple cost effective short journey in train to Saltair train station with the family for one of my child's birthday. Very much to enjoy especially the boat ride. Visit to see for yourself what you are really missing out of just round corner from yours.

Lovely village that takes you back in time. Great place to visit if your into photography. Nice vintage shops and good selection of eating / drinking. The mill is a must place to visit. Also the annual festival is excellent and gets very busy

Saltaire is a wonderful village. The village itself has many unique shops and places to eat. To walk by the canal and watch the many barges that are beautifully painted passing through the locks is awesome to watch. Salts Mill with its displays of David Hockney's work, the delicious salts diner, the bookshop and supplier or art materials and cards... More
