Haworth: One of the most instagramable fairytale villages

Comments 12 Standard

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a fantastic holiday, blessings to you and all your families β›„πŸŽ„πŸŽ. I thought I’d save this introduction of this beautiful place for the Christmas week, because like Christmas it brings such a magical and fairytale vibe.

Haworth is a little village in the city of Bradford. It was home to the famous BrontΓ« sisters Charlotte, Emily and Anne who were the writers of classical books such as Jayne Eyre, Agnes Grey, The tenant Of Wildfell Hall and Wuthering Heights. It is also the filming location of The Railway Children A film from 1970, tho admittedly I’m not very familiar with and still have not got round to watching.

If you have been following my blog you may have read my blog Hebden Bridge: One of the most prettiest towns in Europe well, Haworth is only 20-minutes by car or a 30-minute bus ride away. I would definitely recommend visiting both places for a perfect day out.

I felt like I had just stepped into a fairytale book

I had been wanting to visit here for quite sometime after looking at various pictures on Instagram, thinking how fairytale like it looked and how I’d love to visit. And now I was finally here feeling completely mesmerised at how much it really did resemble the pages of a story book.

The main cobbled street was filled with the cutest independent shops, pubs and houses all with their own unique touches. It was one of those experiences where I truly felt like I had just stepped back in time.

How cute are these houses?

There are so many cute homes here, I wanted to photograph many of them, but that was too extreme so here are just a few.

The pubs and and a not so pretty sight. She put a stop to my fairytale mode! πŸ€£πŸ™ˆ

Haworth has some lovely pubs to experience, the one I chose to go in was the Haworth Old Hall.

Technically I didnt choose to go here, I just couldn’t be bothered to walk after missing the bus and this was recommended to me by a lovely local woman. This was of course after we had just been mortified by having to see a womans bum in the middle of the street. Yes I’m being serious! A woman actually stepped off a bus, whipped her skirt up and pulled down her tights and underwear to have a pee! πŸ™ˆ

Anyway, back to the pub. The local lady who I shared the mortifying moment with told me the bus wasn’t due for another hour. She pointed to this pub and told me they do nice coffee and hot chocolate so I decided to go in. And I’m so glad I did.

The place was so warm from the moment I walked in. The staff here are so friendly and welcoming, this is accompanied by the beautiful decor and the open log fires, its such a lovely atmospheric place.

The pub is also one of the oldest in the village and dates right back to 1621.

Here are some other lovely looking pubs I spotted whilst here.

I can’t wait to share more about this place in my next blog, but I like to keep my blogs short and sweet so I’ll save the rest for another blog.

Thanks for reading

Stay blessed

  1. In some parts of Asia seeing a person, often children, taking a leak in public is not too unusual. There have been reports of some who let their kids go potty in the aisle of a plane! I can understand the shock of seeing a woman do that in the middle of the street in England. Other than that, the town looks like a great place to visit.

    • I think it most probably happens in most countries tbh.You see here too from time to time, but its a bit different when its a child. I suppose when you’ve got to go, you have to go. I guess I just thought it was odd that she did not even try to hide and that there was a pub right next to her. I suppose she had her reasons for doing soπŸ€·πŸΏβ€β™€οΈ. Wow! In the middle of a plane! I’m suspecting they may have had a long wait for the toilets. This makes me not want to travel with kids πŸ˜‚. It’s such a beautiful place I would love to go back now the shops are open again.Many thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts


  2. What a quaint little place! Haworth reminds me vaguely of Santillana del Mar in Spain with those photos you took, albeit Haworth is right by the sea. Seeing people pee in public is uncomfortable, and I usually reckon they’re either drunk or homeless with mental health issues…aside from that, the little town is a gorgeous place to have a pint and enjoy the seaside vibes!


    • Oh I haven’t been there in Spain, I must research it. I’m glad you enjoyed seeing Haworth.

      I don’t suspect this lady was homeless as she looked quite immaculate and looked like she’d been shopping, though I did think there could have been many reasons for this. I suppose I just didn’t expect to see it and in that area.

      Thank you so much for reading and leaving your thoughts on this post. Much appreciated πŸ™πŸΎ
      Happy holidays! 🎊
