Everybody visiting Yorkshire should come and have a look around Saltaire village - it is unique and truly remarkable.

This park is very well kept, with lovely views and arbours to sit in. The café in the park looked nice, but ridiculously didn't allow dogs and was empty (Park was full of people walking dogs...mmmmm). We walked around enjoying the scene for a while before heading back over the bridge, well worth a visit.

At a loose end, my wife and I decided to have a run over into Yorkshire and visit Salts mill located in Saltaire, Shipley.
My wife had been previously but this was my first time. Different to what I expected having previously visited Quarry Bank Mill near Manchester but still worth the trip.
A well preserved mill which has been turned into a kind of up-market bazaar! Plenty of 'arty' stores, David Hockney paintings and other galleries.
A summer visit will be required to follow up the parkland by the river and to make a full day of it.
Very nice café (Salts Diner) and a further one at the top floor which we did not try. I thought it was lacking a bit in the history of the place with only a small exhibition and some videos. Would recommend a summer visit with children as there is a very large play area across the river which would be great for them.
I forgot....it's free entry as well!!

Take a scenic trip on a historic attraction: the oldest working cable tramway in Great Britain dating from 1895.
This attraction is really nice to see, run by people who really care about their attraction, and please visit, it's fun. So it only takes a few minutes to travel from top to bottom, and it's the same the other way. There is a lot...MoreOur volunteers try their best to keep things going. Santa is here starting 2nd December 2017. Times etc are on the website:- Glad you enjoyed tha trip

Visited the woodland and walks near Shipley Glen on several afternoons as a fabulous way to blow away the cobwebs and appreciate the wonderful countryside on offer.
The boys loved exploring the woodland; finding sticks and clamoring over the rocks.
The terrain along the top, up from Prod Lane near the pub/cafe is also manageable by those who may not be used to rambling or walking.
There are plenty of benches and rocks from white view the amazing scenery.
A family favourite.

Took the grandchildren here and was pleasantly surprised. My granddaughter was interested when I explained things, but being eight her concentration waned but we found other things to look at. She, and I liked the old bedroom chambers. My little grandson liked it all too. Another visit will be had.
