A great place to walk to including the surrounding area. With a great cafe at the top, and stunning views of the aire valley.

This would rate at one star only if England's industrial heritage meant nothing to you, but I have scored it on the basis that you are coming here to see it for what it is; a high rise set of 5 locks. Going from the bottom up you are rewarded with a cafe at the top. It is a pleasant... More

It's easy to park nearby to the five-rise locks at this time of year but the whole canal walk and local parking are slightly more well used in the middle of summer. We had a lovely walk last week all the way from here along the canal to Saltaire - lots of wildlife to see and obviously the walk is... More

This was a really great place to enjoy some fresh air and take a nice stroll by the locks. Great photo opportunities too, and would really recommend the little cafe by the water at the top of the lock, lovely to sit outside with a nice cup of tea and homemade cake, while the children can purchase duck bread and...

Not particularly recommended in cold weather. However, in summer, plan your day around it. If, as I am, you are fascinated by our waters and the beautifully adorned barges that navigate them, then a day spent observing how each bargee, novice or expert, lower and raise themselves through this famous set of locks.

Impressive to see a canal rise up a hill - very clever them old people considering no modern machinery that we take for granted!

Living near to five rise locks it truly wonderful. You never get fed up of this sight. We often walk on the canal in both directions,and when you stand at the top of the locks and look down you realise how difficult it must have been to build the locks and how high it is. When you look up at... More

What can I say. It's an industrial heritage site set in very nice location close to bingley town. If you were passing on a nice summers day then you really should stop and see and watch the boats going through. There's a nice cafe at the top and some pleasant walking along the towpath in either direction.

While staying at the nearby hotel of the same name I have often walked down to the locks and then along the canal to the west - you can walk as far as you like and can return either by the towpath or by turning left and picking up the main road to walk back to Bingley for a drink... More
