A group that markets Keighley and the Worth Valley to visitors is encouraging residents to check out attractions on their own doorstep.
The Bronte Country Partner-ship is promoting this weekend’s Go Local Sunday event.
People living in postcodes BD20, 21 and 22 will be able to gain free entry to a range of local visitor destinations.
Participating attractions are East Riddlesden Hall, Police & Forensic Science Museum, Museum of Rail Travel, Ingrow Loco Museum, Keighley & Worth Valley Railway (one round trip), Bronte Parsonage Museum and The Passionate Brontes’ Guided Walks.
Cliffe Castle Art Gallery & Museum is also taking part, though entry is always free.
Visitors are encouraged to use the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway or Keighley Bus Museum Trust’s free heritage bus service 22.
The bus will link the Keighley attractions every 45 minutes from 11.10am to 4.25pm. Timetables are available at Keighley Civic Centre.
To qualify for free entry and travel, locals must provide proof of residency, such as a utility or council tax bill.
Dr Matthew Stroh, BCP chairman, said: “The day represents huge value for money, particularly for families, and we hope it will demonstrate the wealth of attractions and things to do in the area.”
