Great Cafe

The locks are interesting and you can walk or cycle along the Leeds-Liverpool Canal as far as you wish to work up an appetite for the excellent snacks and cakes.

Lovely setting with great places to view to watch the boats coming up and going down the locks. The five rise café does great food and coffee too with outside seating facing south west into the warm sunshine. A real eye opening and restful experience. Great for Families, Couples and friends. Parking a bit of an issue, so suggest for... More

This spot has been a favourite of our family for many years - too many to remember. A very interesting place especially if the barges are coming through, with a nice coffee shop. If wanting a little exercise, a nice canal walk can be had either above or below the locks area. Bingley town is only a short walk away.

I love canals and I love locks so the visit to the Bingley Five Rise Lock is a great outing. The lock visit includes lots of interesting information and some beautiful views. If you're in Bingley take half an hour for a visit.

Beautiful location on the Leeds Liverpool canal, we have cycled here, walked here and narrowboated here! On this day we just had a walk up to the cafe at the top where we had a lovely latte and a delicious icecream.
