Bewildered Family Guide to Yorkshire – Saltaire

The first Bewildered Family Guide to Yorkshire has been released and Elsa and I visit Saltaire in West Yorkshire this week. Take a look:

Saltaire is a beautiful village on the outskirts of Bradford, originally built to house the workers from Titus Salt’s mill on the River Aire. Today, it’s a World Heritage Site and hosts a tonne of fantastic events, is home to an array of independent shops and the mill is now a major tourist attraction, most notably for its collection of David Hockney’s art work.

The Bewildered Family Guide to Yorkshire is a weekly series of films from around Yorkshire in which we test how family friendly the county is. If you are planning a visit to Yorkshire or live here and just any a family day out, you should subscribe to the Bewildered Dad YouTube channel and keep an eye on the Bewildered Family Guide to Yorkshire page.

Thanks to Maria Glot of Salts Walks for her contribution and to the British Council Film Collection for snippets from the film We of the West Riding.

Is there somewhere in Yorkshire we should visit? Let us know!


  1. Jim, I’m very impressed. You’ve captured Saltaire for families very well. Our community will really appreciate this. Thank you!
