Discover Saltaire

The charming village of Saltaire was founded in 1853 by Sir Titus Salt, a leading industrialist in the Yorkshire woollen industry.

The name of the village combines the founder’s surname and the name of the pretty river that runs through the village.

In December 2001, the village was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Fast forward to present day, and Salts Mill now forms the heart of the village.

The impressive building is now fully converted and home to an inspiring David Hockney gallery, a superb selection of shops and some tempting restaurants and cafes.
