It is easy to spend at least a couple of hours here. The church is well worth a visit and the panels self explanatory. If the weather is fine, then cross the bridge over the canal and go into the park. Short boat trips are available on the canal too. The shops and galleries are worth exploring and there is... More

Saltaire village must have been special in its heyday when the mills were working, but these days, with the exception of a few of the civic buildings, it's looking a little tired. The church is worth a look, as are the mills themselves of course, and the park is nice on a sunny day, but unless you have a special... More

A beautiful Yorkshire village, full of character and rich in industrial heritage. I particularly recommend visiting Salts Mill.

When you learnt he history about this town you realise how lucky the workers were to have such a caring man for their boss, The village is such an interesting concept and lovely to walk around, The mill itself is now part museum part art gallery part cafe but worth seeing to see the size of it. The church is... More

A really interesting piece of Yorkshire history in 'the here and now'. Many interesting houses and streets in this original village planned by Sir Titus Salt for his mill workers, which today is inhabited by a diverse population. Surrounded by the history of the place with the Salts Mill housing exhibitions & eateries, Roberts Park with it's lovely Half Moon... More

Spent the afternoon her but to be honest it wasn't long enough. We walked along the canal to get to it which was lovely. It looked really pretty in the sun and the whole place was really clean. Wish we had time to enjoy a boat ride that would have ended a really good afternoon .

The ambiance of the village is what makes this place so pleasant to visit. Add the frequent events held in the hall, the choice of eateries, Salts Mill and the educational walking tour makes for a grand day out.

A vey pretty industrial village almost in a time warp. It's just nice to stroll around and look at the buildings. The canal is pretty too. The Mill has a good collection of things to look at also.

Now a World Heritage Site, the Village of Saltaire was commissioned by Titas Salt in order to improve the living conditions for his Mill Workers at Salts Mill, just a few yards away and adjacent to the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. Lots of historic building, and largely untouched. A must see if in the area. The United Reform Church, commissioned... More
