  • I live near Five-Rise locks in Bingley and visit it several times a week on walks. I am a birdwatcher and the wildlife in the area is a great attraction. The lock keepers are a great bunch of people and do a wonderful job on a demanding set of locks. They are people and wildlife friendly. For me this listed amenity is a very special place throughout the year. There are wonderful views of the surrounding countryside as well as reminders of Bingley's industrial heritage. It is my favourite spot.
  • A fantastic engineering feat. It raises or lowers boats 60 feet from one level of canal to a higher or lower one. Climbing the flight takes about an hour but today I came down on my narrowboat in 30 minutes. Great to do it on a boat but a good experience watching from the side
  • Amazing piece of historical waterway engineering built in 1774. Well worth a visit! In a beautiful part of the countryside. There's a canalside cafe that is reasonably priced and has a great menu for drinks, food and ice creams with seating outside.
  • Fantastic show of engineering. Was a lot of fun reading about the history of Locks and how they are operated. Nice scenery all around. I would recommend it.
  • A good place to visit and a lovely canal walk from Saltaire. There were a couple of barges going up the locks which is good to watch there is also a lovely cafe for a brew and a bite to eat

Where to stay in Bradford

Hotel chains and less expensive accommodations populate the city center. Lodging is also scattered outside the center; however, a centralized location is safer and closer to the main attractions. A few B&Bs are hidden on the outskirts of the city and offer comfortable rooms in quiet neighborhoods.
