6. Saltaire

The charming village of Saltaire was founded in 1853 by Sir Titus Salt, a leading industrialist The name of the village combines the founder's surname and the name of the pretty river Aire that runs through the village.

In 2001, Saltaire was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and recognised as ”one of the earliest, largest and best preserved nineteenth century ‘model villages’ anywhere in the world.” (Discover Saltaire)

This pretty village has a rich history and heritage, and plenty of great attractions to discover. The United Reformed Church is one of the nation's most precious Victorian buildings and a well preserved example of Italianite religious architecture.
