A relaxing visit taking in the history of the mill itself to viewing modern art. Capped by a good meal, then a stroll around jewellers, the walking shop and the curio section (this brings back memories)! Overall a good place to spend half a day.

A very old building in the heart of Shipley, we went around here as we were hiding painted rocks in the area. There are some lovely views and nice walks from around this local area

The combination of art gallery, book-shop, cafe's and diner (with a car park) make this a good place for inter-generational visits.

It wasn't memorable at all for us. We had been wanting to go for a couple of years and when the opportunity came we were disappointed. In fact I can't remember much about it at all.

Leeds for two days (5 Replies)
Hi, I'm gonna stay in Leeds for two days. Besides touring around city of Leeds, I plan to visit York or Salts mill on the other day. If I have to choose, which one is better and easier to reach? Or, it is possible to visit both place between 2 days?.Any suggestion are welcome. Thanks.

Both easy by train. York has more to see and do and would be best option
