Join us for an informative, entertaining, humorous and refreshingly different visit to the World Heritage Site and working model Victorian village of Saltaire.

Saltaire is not a museum; it is a thriving working community. Our guides bring to life the men, women and children who lived and worked in the village from the 1850s to the present day. Find out more about the common mill workers, as well as the craftspeople and professionals and see their houses and places of work.

Ask about  lives in the village today, the history of Jonathan Silver, Sir James Roberts,  Illingworth Morris or  the First and Second World Wars.
