An interesting couple of hours can be spent here. The museum a the foot of the ride is well worth a look around. it is tiny but full of very interesting information. There is a cute sweet shop at the top as well.

You would have to take the child out of the pram whilst on the ride. You could leave the pram at the base station or fold it and take it with you. At the top you can buy sweets in their little shop, visit the pub for lunch, go to a small museum Bracken Hall Countryside Centre which has simple activities for children, go for walks, or walk back down a path to the base station. Near the bottom is the excellent Roberts Park and of course Saltaire.
