A good number of Hochney's, a book shop, gallery, outdoor shop and a couple of cafes.
There is also an amazing exhibition space on the top floor where we saw an exhibition by contempory textile artists, opened 18Aug . See it it's not a bunch of tapestries!

Restaurants, shops, exhibitions, cafes and antiques in a unique historic setting. Saltaire deserves its status of a heritage site.

If you have a few hours to spare, make sure you give the Salts Mill a visit.
It is beautifully laid out, with vastly extensive and beautifully handcrafted gifts, materials, books, jewellery and antiques on offer. The building itself is magnificent and worth looking at the architecture.
In particular, I enjoyed the history section where you could find out all about Titus Salt and his life, alongside the successors of the mill.
Furthermore, the cafe looks lovely - wish we had had time to stay and eat.
Do visit, it is worth it!

Recently took my four grandchildren to Salts Mill, in Saltaire. My thirteen year old grand daughter loves David Hockney paintings and she was not disappointed. The Mill is absolutely wonderful - so huge, so beautiful, inside and out, each amazing floor divulging more new mysteries and wonders. The top floor with some amazing art work, the gorgeous cafe with home made food and cheerful helpful service, the mind-boggling book shop that I could have spent hours (and a fortune) in, and the incredible lily-scented, peaceful, atmospheric ground floor with art supplies, post cards, more books - almost too much to take in. And on sadly leaving the Mill, its setting is just beautiful, with Saltaire and its workers' cottages, and the sweeping tree covered Glen - it is a mighty edifice, a piece of history, renovated and run with love and passion, which gives the Mill its unique enviable quality.
