Is there enough to see on the third floor? Coming from Sheffield so long journey
Not a huge lot to see. We did the entire building and the surrounding area in probably less than two hours, taking our time. Then we moved on to the BBC Museum which is not far away. We were staying in a Hotel in the centre of Bradford and had travelled from Newcastle. Probably wouldn't visit again.
Hi - the Mill itself is well worth a vist, spead over 3 fllors, theres a David Hockney exhibition and lots of small individual shops close to the Mill. Also, in Victoria Hall which is a short walk away they have a Wurlitzer Theatre Organ that is sometimes playing - its worth just popping in to see if its out. The whole area is very interesting - if its a nice day take a walk through Roberts Park - not far from there is the original Shipley Glen Tramway - I dont think you will be disappointed - you can easily spend a day there. If you like a breakfast - drop into Salts Village Bakery Cafe - its split into two - the top floor is cheap cheerful and very good!
There is plenty to see/buy over the whole mill. It's a very historic place if you are interested in the work that went on in woollen mills. Lots to read, gifts, art, pottery etc. Stop for a coffee too to look at your purchases and discuss the history of the mill. Plus the streets adjoining are very historic, very interesting with small antique/curio shops and cafe's. We didn't have enough time to go into the basement. Will do that on the next visit. The mill is very close to the railway station so not off the beaten track. Enjoy!!
Why worry about the third floor? This is a non question! and you are traveling from Sheffield about 20 miles we traveled from Newcastle 150 miles. .
There is so much to see on all the floors but you have to be interested in Art and Culture or maybe Bikes as there is a good Bike Shop on the site.
And then you have Salt's Village itself.
There is a lot to see as you have the mill and the village - there is a lovely book area, gifts, cafe and some art ~ I think it's a nice day out. Can't remember the third floor specifically, but the mill itself you could be as quick or as long as you like if you like looking at books and bits !
Hi check times and days when third floor is open as different to the rest of they mill.there's the history of the mill and David Hockney display at the moment.not a lot but with the rest of the mill and a wander around saltaire and a walk on the canal you could make a day of it with plenty of eating places in the mill and in saltaire hope you enjoy it
On our visit the third floor had not yet opened.
I have seen them via the power of television and they look good on the box so will be making the trip. Personally i will be looking forward to revisiting the other two floors of the mill again also having a wander once more round Saltaire village.
You can fill a day here, in my opinion. The ground floor has an unequalled display of Hockney prints, and an outstanding art bookshop. On the third floor there is a very good general bookshop, possibly the best shop in Britain for modern furniture & household goods, at the weekend a big antiques outlet, a jewellery shop and a camping shop. It's worth while spending a little time walking round Saltaire village, a model Victorial workers' village, the canal is attractive for a walk, there is a Victorian park with a good childrens' playground, and if you feel a bit energetic you can go up Shipley Glen to the moortop with good views. Two decent restaurants in the Mill for lunch.
