    What a great place! We travelled to Shipley especially from Cornwall (via family!) to see the place- very glad we did! What an incredible building. Full of interesting shops and cafe, but best of all… a lot of Hockney. Well worth spending some time here!

    My recent visit to Saltaire Victorian Village in West Yorkshire offered a fascinating journey into the past. At the heart of Saltaire stands the impressive Salt Mill, once a bustling hub of industry that now stands as a silent sentinel to days gone by. While the mill itself is no longer operational, its imposing presence serves as a reminder of the region's industrial heritage and the innovative spirit that shaped its development.

    As I strolled through the village's quaint streets lined with Victorian-era houses, I couldn't help but appreciate the architectural charm and historical significance of each building. From the neatly arranged rows of terraces to the meticulously preserved storefronts, Saltaire Victorian Village offers a glimpse into a time when craftsmanship and community were paramount.

    Saltaire Victorian Village offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of modern life. In addition to its historical landmarks, Saltaire Victorian Village also boasts a vibrant cultural scene with art galleries, shops, and cafes that add to its allure. While the village may not offer the same level of excitement as more bustling tourist destinations, its understated charm and rich heritage make it a worthwhile stop for those seeking a leisurely day of exploration and reflection.

    Nice little train. £2.50 each return ticket. Only lasts about 5 minutes at the most. You can walk up in about 10 to 15 minutes. Great for kids. First time on. Nice area. Next to Roberts park. Unique attraction. Very cute. They prefer card payments. Run by volunteers, I think.

    This park is 2 minutes from the mill. Beautifully kept with historical features including a statue of Titus Salt. Cafe nice and worth a visit too.

    Beautiful wild spot. Take a cardi and sun cream as it is exposed up there.

    Info - Public toilets down the hill after the golf club.

    My friend and myself went on the tour of the brewery. It was a great way to spend 90 min. Only the two of us on the tour but very good. They explained how the brewery formed and has expanded to what it is now. Also explained how COVID and the energy crisis had influenced the direction the brand was going. Showed all the processes to make the excellent beers. Ended with 4 glasses of beers to try in the tap room. The tap room was very busy and we had a few extra pints after our friends son met us.

    Nice park. Great for dog walking. Good little playground for children. Miniature railway, check operating times / days. Allotments nearby. Benches to sit. Free parking. Electric charge points for cars. Not all level, a bit hilly. Been a few times.
    Friendly local people. Doggy bins.

    I had my second massage today at Sirinart, my masseuse was Riya. I’m a scaffolder and am constantly tense with aches and pains all over my body… I walked out after a 90 minute session feeling much much better. I will genuinely be revisiting Riya again at some point in the near future.
    THUMBS UP 👍 👍

    Opened in 2013 the Aire Sculpture trail is a bit of fun which starts with the Octopus at the canal by the Boathouse Inn and continues initially down the canal and then the River Aire along to the Dog in a Dinghy at the Baildon Bridge on the Otley Road. This is a decent riverside walk anyway, taking about 20 minutes in one direction, but it is made more interesting having to spot the 15 pieces of artwork, something we actually failed to do on the first pass.
    Yes, sadly the local youth have decided to embellish a couple of them with the usual juvenile graffiti, but it isn’t that offensive and doesn’t detract too much. In fact a bigger problem is what to do when you get to the Baildon Bridge, as this is on the fairly boring town outskirts. You could always turn around and retrace your steps making it about a 40 minute walk in total, but if doing the walk on Wednesday to Saturday after 12pm my recommendation would be to extend it by crossing the road and continuing along Dockfield Road to the Saltaire Brewery Tap. And then after a fresh pint of Saltaire Blonde you can then retrace your steps back along the Leeds Liverpool Canal to where you started.

    Very pleasantly surprised at how nice this place is.
    Really great idea to be able to book a table during the ticket buying process too, as I've never seen this before.
    The play area itself is huge, much bigger than any other one near me. My daughter had a fantastic time and I was happy knowing that I could see her wherever she was in case of accidents.
    The food and drinks are reasonably priced and loads of variety.
    The only downside is parking. The car park isn't tiny but it is busy so it can be a battle to get a space. I'd say turn up in plenty of time to make sure you get a space before your time slot.
    We will definitely be back.

    We booked the golf club for a wake for 100 people. Options for a wake of this size, at a venue of this calibre in the Shipley area are limited and this is a great venue and we would highly recommend it.
    The beautiful views are a bonus.
    Car parking is good.
    The staff were plentiful and very helpful. The food was good and was served immediately upon our arrival.
    Perfect for what is ultimately, due to the nature of a funeral, always going to be a last minute booking.
    Great location also for guests who don't know the area, as it is just around the corner from Shay Grange, so easily accessible.
    The staff listened to our music requests too and we enjoyed listening to our loved one's favourite music.
