Fodor's Review

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the former model village of Saltaire was built in the mid-19th century by textile magnate Sir Titus Salt. When he decided to relocate his factories from the dark mills of Bradford to the countryside, he hoped to create an ideal industrial community in which his workers would be happy. The Italianate village is remarkably well preserved, its former mills and houses now turned into shops, restaurants, and galleries. Part of Salt's Mill, built

in 1853, resembles a palazzo. The largest factory in the world when it was built, today it holds an art gallery, along with crafts and furniture shops. One-hour guided tours (£4) of the village depart weekends and some holiday Mondays at 2 pm from the tourist information center.
