Shopping Experience in Saltaire

Titus Salt knew what he was doing when he put 40 shops in the village. He soon noticed that thousands of people came into the village to shop. Before long three sets of tram company owners opened tramsheds around Saltaire to bring even more people in. The variety of shops in the village was second to none in the 1850s. For a fascinating insight into the shops of the time, get hold of Roger Clarke’s Book “A Penny for Going”, a brilliant history of Saltaire through its many and varied shops. It can be purchased in the Saltaire United Reformed Church Shop at £8.50

Today there are so many unique and individual shopping experiences to be had in Saltaire. Just stroll down Victoria Road, or potter along Gordon Terrace and Bingley Road. Go into Salts Mill, or venture down Caroline St.
