  • UNESCO World Heritage Site model industrial village with Italianate influence in architecture. Wander around or join a guided tour. Do not miss Hockney's art in Salts Mill. Enjoy a walk in Roberts Park or along the Aire River or Leeds to Liverpool canal. The riverside Art walk starts from the canal tow path after the New Mill, going eastwards from Victoria road. Grab a coffee, or a pint overlooking the river. Can be reached by train from Leeds. The annual festival in September is fantastic.
