Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all have a fantastic holiday, blessings to you and all your families ⛄🎄🎁. 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 Brontë 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.

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! 🤣🙈
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! 🙈
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
