Charming village.
Nov 2021
Visited many years ago and came back again this week. Nothing seems to have changed, thank goodness. It is a lovely place to visit with so much to see. Needs more signage for disabled visitors.

excellent Victorian village with a interesting town hall, church, mill, education buildings and some shops. Walk along the canal is pleasant and there frequents trains to Skipton, Leeds and Bradford.

Closed!

On the recommendation of a lady in Ilkley we drove to Saltaire only to find it was closed except for weekends. The old streets were interesting and worth another visit at some time. Check local opening times before visiting

A lovely place
Aug 2021 • Couples
We didn’t know what to expect from Saltaire but visited on a weekend when there was lots going on. From an organic allotment event to a small market in a car park. From the beautiful Salts Mill and arty shops to the lovely park where people were belly dancing to folk music or Latin dancing on the level above the cricket field where lots of people were watching the cricket or playing ball. We thought we’d be there for a few hours but in reality we’re there all day and returned for an evening meal at Don’t Tell Titus. Such a lovely day out.

A walk down memory lane
Aug 2021
I lived in Saltaire as a boy, and this visit was for my brother's funeral (he having been a Bingley resident), Walking from the Ring O'Bells, down Victoria Road to the canal and along the towpath to Bingley with my nephew allowed me to reflect on sixty years' worth of change. Much of the best of Saltaire remains, I'm happy to say.

Interesting place but no disabled guidance
Aug 2021
Saltaire is a very interesting place to visit and I did enjoy my visit. However, it is just a shame that it does not really make life easy for a disabled person. I appreciate that it was not built with that in mind but a few things could be improved. When I arrived and parked in a disabled space at the entrance there were steps up and no notice for where wheelchair or scooter users should go. There is no obvious reception to offer help or advice only a desk to pay for purchases. I asked if there was a guide book and was prepared to pay. I was told on that guide books were on the 3rd floor. I had just come down from there. When I got home I bought a guidebook from Amazon. My visit could have been better if there had been somewhere to ask advice as to what was best for disabled people.

a beautiful charming village . Well worth a wander , with a nice art gallery and some good places to eat and drink. Would definitely recommend the canal boat trip . Also easily accessible by train from Leeds.

Just a tourist trap
Jul 2021
Sadly most of the buildings in Saltaire village are now not available to view inside as they've all been made offices or college related. This is the only place in Yorkshire where we experienced an unfriendly person who would not let us walk through a car park, even though there was a sign saying pedestrian access only.

Saltaire Village
May 2021
Visited Saltaire village & Salts Mill, historical monuments to the Victorian capitalist cum philanthropist Sir Titus Salt. Other similar examples of this type of thing being Cadbury’s Bourneville village in Birmingham & Lever’s Port Sunlight village on the Wirral.

The village was nice enough but spoiled slightly by the multitudes of private alterations eg front doors of various types. A more uniform look would really set this village apart more befitting its UNESCO approval.

You can see the ‘highlights’ by just taking a stroll up & down Victoria Road after visiting Salts Mill & Roberts Park: Church, Dining Hall, Victoria Hall, School, Hospital & Almshouses. A very short diversion up Titus Street from Victoria Road brings you to the house with the ‘watchtower’.
