Crunching the numbers - what does it mean?
The ratings are based on a number of walking-related factors including how safe people feel walking, the convenience of public transport, how easy it is to walk to green space, how clear the pavements are, how easy it is to walk to shops and services and the quality of public space.
An it's important to stress - what the findings demonstrate most is that all of our biggest cities have plenty to do if they are to become world-class walking cities.
Edinburgh scored highest in all areas but one, slipping to second for how easy it is to walk to local shops and services.
Most cities scored well on access to local parks and green spaces on foot, an average of 54% of people saying they were easy to get to; this was even higher for Edinburgh residents at 67%.
And more than two-thirds of people found it easy or very easy to walk to local shops.
The results also highlighted needs for improvement across every city with 20% of all people surveyed saying they would definitely walk more if it were safer and easier.
And more than three-quarters are in favour of more measures to encourage walking in their city.
Our survey was conducted by Opinion Matters, who spoke to a weighted selection of 2,200 people from the 10 biggest cities (by population) in Great Britain, plus the Welsh capital Cardiff.
