Cookery demonstrations, art installations and live music form just a tiny part of the annual Saltaire Festival, which sees the The World Heritage Site come alive for two weeks every September.

I headed down with the dog and we happily whiled away the afternoon wondering through the market stalls that line the footpaths of the village and park, nibbling on tasting plates of meat, fresh bread and cheese.

At the bottom of the Shipley Glen Tramway kids were occupied with a fairground, whilst the grown-ups spent a good couple of hours watching the live bands on the main stage and the traditional bandstand in Roberts Park.

Aagrah hosted cookery demonstrations throughout the day but we tucked into kangaroo burger! Victoria Hall showcased local crafts and art stands, whilst Salts Mill, most famous for its permanent David Hockney gallery, gave an artistic slant to the day and the offices of PACE opened their doors to showcase local films.

The village of Saltaire has a thriving calendar of activities throughout the year and the nearest Cedar Court Hotel is the Best Western Plus Cedar Court Leeds / Bradford Hotel.
