From the tram shed at the top of the hill to the mill and the church nearer the canal there are lots of interesting buildings to explore

A good family day out, with lots to do and see. The weather was good and made it pleasant to walk around. Very tranquil! I would recommend a day visit, even if its just to walk around and browse.

Ideal day out. I would suggest arriving by train as the available parking was nearly full at 10:00am. Very good local Metro service from Leeds. Walk around the village and old mill.

We enjoyed the art in Salt's Mill as well as the building and its history. Walking round the village of Saltaire was fascinating, we visited the Church and walked through the traditional streets. We took a picnic to Roberts park as it was sunny but then walked up Shipley Glen and back along the canal.

If you go anywhere near Bradford on your travels, then a trip to Saltaire village is an absolute must! The architecture, history, food and cultural delights of the Salt Mills is a delight. Saltaire thoroughly deserves its status as a UNESCO world heritage site.
