Salts Mill is a Grade II Listed historic building and formerly a working textile Mill, which was built in 1853 by Sir Titus Salt, along with a whole Victorian village, which housed all his 3,000+ Mill workers along with Churches and schools too. The Mill is set in the UNESCO World Heritage site of Saltaire near Shipley.

Salts Mill is an Art Gallery and Shopping complex. The Mill houses many independent businesses within its vast building, including many fine restaurants and cafes too. 

The 1853 Gallery houses some of Bradford born David Hockney’s famous art as permanent positions and is known world-wide. The 1853 Gallery was an ingenious idea borne out of a long friendship between Jonathan Silver (who bought Salts Mill in 1987) and David Hockney, showcasing some of his world-famous art pieces, which is truly wonderful. Why not visit and see for yourself?
