Walk in the footsteps of the Brontë Sisters

22nd May, 2015 | Article By Bradford VIC

Haworth sits in the Worth Valley surrounded by the dramatic moorlands. The village is most famous for being the place which inspired the Brontë sisters to write their world famous novels.   The Brontë’s wrote whilst living at the Parsonage when their father was the parson at the church of St Michael and All Angels. In 2016 Haworth and the Brontë Parsonage Museum will be celebrating the bicentennial of Charlotte’s birth, and there will be a number of exciting events taking place.

During your stay you can explore the cobbled streets and take in the romantic Brontë heritage which surrounds you. Not only can you visit the Parsonage and Church but venture slightly further out and see the inspirational moors which they say were the setting for Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre.

Haworth celebrates its Brontë heritage, but is proud that today it has become a fascinating, individual village which is centred around the steep, cobbled Main Street. There are a number of individual and quirky shops scattered amongst the cafes, pubs and restaurants. There are plenty of events throughout the year so there will always be something to keep you entertained.

So come along and visit and become immersed in the history of this picturesque village set in spectacular countryside.
