Saltaire railway station is in the tiny village of Saltaire in the heart of West Yorkshire some 4 miles north of Bradford. It was constructed in the mid-19th century by the then Midland Railway and was open for just over a century before it closed due to the withdrawal of services during the Beeching Axe in the ‘60s. It reopened two decades later by British Rail and still to this day retains the wooden platforms and stone-built waiting shelters on both sides of the platforms. It also features pretty, wrought-iron station lamps in keeping with the Victoria houses that overlook the station. It’s a busy commuter station serving almost a million passengers annually. The station is unstaffed and there is no ticket office, though there are self-service machines as well as digital displays and timetable posters. There are two departures an hour direct to Bradford Forster Square in 12 minutes and Skipton in 29 minutes.
One of the biggest draws to the UNESCO World Heritage village is Salts Mills, a former mill house now occupied by an impressive art gallery, a boutique shopping centre and several eateries and cafes.
