Sir Titus Salt (1803-1876) built the village for his mill workers in a style inspired by the architecture of the Italian Renaissance. He named it after himself (Salt) and the river it is next to (Aire). Three of the five main College buildings are all Grade II listed, providing a unique atmosphere & environment for education, and the Jonathan Silver building was built later in 2015.
Saltaire became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001, the same status as the Taj Mahal, Grand Canyon and Great Wall of China! It's one of the most visited areas in Bradford and draws more than 250,000 visitors annually. There are a host of attractions and events in Saltaire as well as the historic cobbled streets and buildings. Saltaire has also been a popular filming location with appearances in The English Game, Peaky Blinders, Agatha Christie and An Inspector Calls.
Salts Mill is home to Europe's largest collection by Bradford's David Hockney, a shopping complex and restaurant.
