Sir Titus Salt built one of Yorkshire's many textile mills and created the entire Saltaire village for his workforce to live and play, the complete model town has become a major influence in modern urban town planning. Nowadays, you can take a costume guided tour around the UNESCO world heritage site bringing the industrial village experience to life as well as visiting Salts Mill which has now been converted into an arts space. The mill holds a magnificent collection of local artist, David Hockney's works along with antique shops, a village history exhibition and café. Make your way over the bridge to the beautiful Roberts Park where festivals and dragon boat races take place every summer or have a leisurely walk or canal boat ride down the River Aire.
