Saltaire is remarkable - a complete Victorian village built all in one go by wool baron Sir Titus Salt to house his textile workers. The development achieved World Heritage status in 2001. A 10-minute stroll along the Leeds & Liverpool Canal from the village will bring you to Hirst Wood Lock and the seven-arch aqueduct over the River Aire.

Saltaire World Heritage village has so much to explore. Not east Roberts Park, the vehicle tramway and Salt's Mill (which now houses Europe's largest collection of works by Bradford-born artist, David Hockney).
