In January 2015, Bingley acquired the status of Walkers are Welcome town. It is now part of a national network of communities endorsed for their amenities, opportunities and hospitality for walkers and which can promote themselves under the Walkers are Welcome brand. Bingley joins Baildon and Burley in Wharfedale in the City of Bradford Metropolitan District as well as Otley in the Leeds City Council area to make this part of West-Yorkshire one of the most welcoming places in the country for walkers!

As well as encouraging the health benefits of walking, Walkers are Welcome status can also help to boost the local economy by attracting visitors and increasing footfall.
