Covid-19 update (March 2021): following on from the Governments lockdown road map we have given much thought to our own walking map and are proposing the following. We intend to resume our monthly Sunday walks on Sunday June 13th. We then intend to hold our annual Walking Festival on Bank Holiday Monday August 30th. This will of course be subject to Government guidelines. More details will be posted on our town centre noticeboard, on this website, Facebook and Twitter pages nearer the time.

In the meantime stay safe and keep exploring and enjoying our lovely town. 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! Best Foot Forward.

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!

Yes, it's official! There are more Walkers are Welcome towns in Yorkshire than anywhere else in the UK.
