Salts Mill (sometimes spelled Salt's Mill) is a former textile mill, now an art gallery, shopping centre, and restaurant complex in Saltaire, Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. It was built by Sir Titus Salt in 1853, and the present-day 1853 Gallery takes its name from the date of the building which houses it. The mill has many paintings by the local artist David Hockney on display and also provides offices for Pace plc.

Salts mill is really pretty and worth a visit. The art exhibitions weren't completely my cup of tea, but I enjoyed the restaurant and bookshop a lot. Disabled access was also good for my Grandma in her scooter.
Fantastic place for a day visit. Saltaire is a model village and is fascinating to look around. Salts mill houses all manner of art works, most notably the work of David Hockney, and is worth spending time with. The cafe and restaurants are also very good, if slight expensive. Highly recommended for a family day out.
Saltaire is a UNESCO World Heritage Site built in the 1850's. The Salts' Mill is just a part of the whole picture, albeit an elegantly imposing and important part. Walk around the whole village area and take in everything to have a better appreciation. Then, visit Salts Mill. This is an extremely large and impressive building overseeing Saltaire village. Salts Mill houses 5 art galleries, 3 cafes, about 9 shops and a music school. Have plenty of time on your hands, because it's worth taking your time, anyway, you won't be able to help yourself once you start. You won't be disappointed. The photo I have included here is from the 1853-Gallery which exhibits mostly David Hockney's works. I think his painting sums it up very well.
I love this place. Its is full of character. The Hockney gallary is splendid. So is the antique shop, the kitchen shop and best of all the bookshop. Its a place you keep going back to again and again!
Been there with a bunch of teens. They didn't like the exposition but I did. Nice art collection and a huge collection of books in the store. Also antiques and other useful or special stuff in the shops. The part of the exposition about the saltair mill could have been more in quantity and interaction. Still worth a visit. Larger groups have to register before a visit
Love it here. My wife and I visit at least once or twice a year as we both love the arts, and it makes a great day out. The galleries and shops stock some great stuff, and there's 2 places to choose from to eat. If the weather is ok you can also cross the road and have a wander around Saltaire too - there are a couple of decent pubs, and a park next to the canal and even a canal ice cream parlour and canal boat rides.
Salts never disappoints regardless of how many times I go. Whether you are local or a visiting tourist if you like/love art and books this is a must. Just love the ambience of the gallery wonderful books on art and photography in particular. The presence of Hockney is everywhere and makes for great viewing. Other exhibitions too, a great American diner and other retail outlets. All in the fantastic setting of the majesterial mill. Visit the village too for a couple of quirky shops, bars and eateries. The church and village architecture of great historical interest. In summer walk the river or go for a barge ride up the canal.
Great place to visit, and free too. David Hockney is the main artist on show but there are many others on show too. There is a very unique part which specialises in designer goods, furniture kitchen and household adornments. The antique section brought back some memories, unfortunately!!!!!!! Had lunch at the restaurant, very nice, slightly pricey but good tucker. The building itself is worth a visit, brought back to its splendor. Definitely worth another visit
Love Salts Mills. Perfect afternoon location, especially when it is raining out. The Hockney Gallery is great as are the mix of shops. The book shop is outstanding and the cafe make a great Pizza!
Great for small antiques books and David Hockney. Parking is a bit hard too find so go past the first sign to the mill from the Skipton end . Decent food Bistros. A fun place. Different.
More than just a gallery - the main exhibition is permanently the work of David Hockney. Sometimes there are others, however the last time I went I didn't see the other work which was supposedly on display. There is a vast area selling stationary and an impressively wide range of books for all ages and interests. Also if you have deep pockets there is an upmarket home/kitchenware outlet and one for all your outdoor clothing needs. The cafe is a pleasant place to relax after an hour or two of browsing.
A harsh review, I know but it looks as if the Head Chef is pretty contemptuous of vegetarians. We’ve been coming here for years and have regularly recommended it to friends. BUT the veggie menu is slowly but surely disappearing. 4 specials today; 0 vegetarian. Vegetarian risotto and pasta gone from the core menu. Leaves very little choice. We’re sad to say we won’t be coming again. Wake up guys. It’s 2018.
Wonderful Victorian mill in the heart of Saltaire. Surrounded by historic buildings the location is a great place to visit. Whether your visiting the mill with it's vast array of indoor shop, located on various floors amid a series of galleries. Or for a walk in the park, along the river or canal. There are lots to be seen and done. A local famous paint has a permanent gallery within the mill. David Hockney paintings are on display here for all to view. Best of all there no admission fee to view this fantastic building.
