Absolutely gorgeous buildings, like walking back in time. Could do with having more history and authenticness as very little on show for such an impressive building.

What a wonderful find. The whole village is like an outdoor museum where people live and enjoy what once was .... today. All in the backdrop of the beautiful surrounding hills.

I spent a lovely day out at Saltaire recently. The village is interesting to walk around and reading about the history is fascinating. Despite the intrusion of the motor car and with wheelie bins visible, it is still a special place. The railway, canal and river are all close together with a wonderful park close by. I enjoyed browsing in... More

Worth a day long visit to see the shops and sights, especially the galleries in the restored Saltaire Mills, built as a woolens factory by Titus Salt but now converted to shops, cafes, art galleries and museum, connected by stairways and lifts.

A world heritage site and not for anything but good reason. It's full a character and charm with interesting bits to see all over starting from the main road with Fannys ale house to ROBERTS park over the river. One time not to miss is September when the festival is on which is the highlight of the saltaire scene
