Bingley is a great place to live with the villages on the outskirts proving very popular areas.
Bingley has traditionally been a small market town since the King John chapter in 1212!
Situated within the Aire Valley and on the edge of the scenic Yorkshire Dales. Bingley is rich in history and allows easy access to Leeds, Bradford and surrounding areas.
Surrounded by a landscape of broad moorland and with great transport links to neighbouring cities Leeds and Bradford, Bingley offers the best of both worlds. The town's historical connection with waterways also sees it boast the Five-Rise locks which is the steepest flight of such in the UK!
Myrtle Park plays host to the annual Bingley Music Live Festival which has seen the likes of The Human League, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and Bingley's own Marmozets.
Further nearby attractions include Haworth's famous Bronte Parsonage; original home of the Bronte sisters and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Saltaire.
Literature enthusiasts may recognise why the desolate farmhouse ruin of Top Withen's is said to have inspired the property features in 'Wuthering Heights'. Similarly, the authentically preserved Worth Valley steam railway has featured in plenty of period dramas and films, most famously the film adaptation of E. Nesbit's The Railway Children.
Bingley boasts a range of public houses, restaurants, parks and countryside walks. This includes the original Potting Shed bar and restaurant which started the chain that can now be found in Guiseley, Beverley and soon to be Leeds Trinity.
Bingley has transport access to Leeds, Bradford and Skipton including excellent road and rail links with an easy commute to Leeds/Bradford International Airport.
