Saltaire station is adjacent to Salts Mill, a former textile mill, now an art gallery, shopping centre, and restaurant complex. The mill has many paintings by the renowned local artist David Hockney on display. Close by is the Leeds-Liverpool Canal and River Aire. Roberts Park is situated on the north bank of the Aire a short walk away. Beyond the park is the volunteer-run Shipley Glen Tramway.
Salts Mill and Saltaire Village, to the south of the railway were built by Sir Titus Salt, a leading industrialist, in 1851 as a Victorian model village in Shipley and are considered a landmark example of enlightened 19th century urban planning.
