A Heritage Open Day event from Saltaire History Club....

This is a unique opportunity to travel back in time and walk in the footsteps of the millworkers and students of Victorian Saltaire, who used tunnels constructed beneath the roads to get to work or to their studies.

Never before have these two tunnels been publicly accessible and our thanks go to Shipley College and Salts Mill for sharing their secrets with us for this special Weekend.

No booking required.

Meet outside Victoria Hall
Max 12 people per tour/session.
Tours last 30 mins.

Access to the Exhibition Rd tunnel requires ascent & descent of little-used stairs and for that reason, regrettably, wheelchair access is not possible. Access to the Dining Hall tunnel is possible by wheelchair, although the surface is a bit bumpy.
