Details

To tie in with Hockney Day, we are stepping into the past with our guided tour of Saltaire – the historic model village surrounding West Yorkshire’s iconic Salts Mill and UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Opened in 1853 by philanthropist Sir Titus Salt, the mill was the centrepiece of Saltaire’s new and industrial utopian age, complete with an adjoining model village to house its many workers.

Today, Salts Mill is home to one of the world’s largest collections of David Hockney art.

Led by Maria Glott, the tour will be an insight-filled look at this mid-nineteenth century village and show what life would have been like living and working in Saltaire when Salts Mill was in its glorious heyday.

Comfortable footwear and weather-appropriate clothing is essential

Meet outside Victoria Hall main entrance steps, Saltaire
