Covid-19 update: sadly and for obvious reasons we have decided to suspend our monthly walks until further notice. We have the best interest of our walkers and walk leaders to consider and must do everything we can to minimise the risk.

We know that many of you have taken on walking during the lockdown as a way to exercise more and we hope that this will inspire you to join us once we resume all our activities. In the meantime, if you are out and about  please take a look at the Countryside Code which has been updated during this pandemic.

We want you to enjoy your walks and we have many walking routes listed on this website in and around Bingley.

We look forward to seeing you all again in the not too distant future.

What is Bingley Walkers are Welcome?

Walkers are Welcome logo - Small SizeBingley Walkers are Welcome was formed in 2015 and we are part of a national network of towns. As well as promoting and encouraging the health benefits of walking, our Walkers are Welcome status help us boosting the local economy by attracting visitors and increasing footfall. You can easily recognise a Walkers are Welcome business when they have displayed the logo on their shop window. Bottom line: We want to encourage you to come and visit Bingley!

Yorkshire is the friendliest place for walkers!
