Visit to Salt's Mill
Guided Tour | Salt's Mill
Friday 20 October 2017 - 10:45 until 12:00
Salt's Mill (a former cloth mill and UNESCO World Heritage Site) opened in 1853 by Sir Titus Salt, who also built the village of Saltaire for his workers.
Developed in the 1980's by David Hockney's friend Jonathan Silver, it is now a grade II listed building, housing a complex of art galleries, shops and restaurants. Lifts are available to all floors. We meet at the visitors' desk in the mill for a guided tour of the 1853 Gallery, which houses many of Hockney's works.
Please indicate when booking if you would like lunch in Salt's Diner and you will be sent a menu to pre-order. Alternatively there are cafes in Saltaire village.
In the afternoon independently explore the book shops and the rest of the mill, Saltaire village or visit the Cartwright Gallery in Lister Park, Bradford.
This event has been organised by the South Yorkshire Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
