“More to see than the Hockney gallery - worth a full day”
Review of Saltaire Village

Saltaire Village
Ranked #1 of 17 things to do in Shipley
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 March 2012

The village is a UNESCO World Heritage Center, beautifully situated in the hills on the banks of the Aire and with fast access from Leeds and Bradford by rail. My visit was primarily to Salt's Mill, (http://www.saltsmill.org.uk/) the original mill of the 19th c model village, converted to a cultural center (free entrance) to house works by David Hockney, also including small shops, history of the area and good dining options.The well-preserved village is worth a walk and there are other buildings of interest. Outdoor dining by the river and an extensive park add to the attractions. http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1028

Visited this place with my husband and my cousin. Loved the gallery and the exhibition that was going on. Roamed about the old mills' quarters and learnt a lot about this history of this place. Now planning to visit this place during summer time so that I can go around and do some hiking in the area.

The restaurant is busy but serve very very tasty food. Called for Sea Bass and it was fantastic. The choice of desserts was a perfect compliment to the entire meal.

A world heritage site due to it being the model village built around the mill owned by Titus Salt. The mill is now the home to many of the world famous David Hockney's artworks, sometimes visited by him since his return home to Yorkshire.
Nice restaurants, cafes, art galleries, parks and walks along the river & canal. The Shipley glen tramway nearby is also not to be missed.
