Salts Mill, Shipley

4.4
Once the largest industrial building in the world by total floor area, Salts Mill contains a large collection of works by artist David Hockney and a number of independent shops and restaurants. This former mill was built in 1853 by Titus Salt, a local manufacturer and politician. The historic mill also includes an exhibition narrating the fascinating history of Saltaire, a World Heritage Site that once served as home to hundreds of Salt’s workers. Take a little time to explore the many shops inside the old building, which sell everything from bicycles to antiques. You can also walk or cycle on the canal path, which passes by the mill and is part of the national cycle network.
