This blog is a continuation from my previous blog post, only this time I want to take you through the Brontë Adventure. As I mentioned previously in my last blog, this was home to the Brontë sisters . The novelists lived here from 1820 to 1855 and the place was a source of inspiration for some of their writings.
Haworth has become one of the favourite UK tourist attractions due to its beauty and connection with the Brontë sisters. You can see all the monuments and connections to the family around this little village and ‘The Brontë Country’
Things to do for a Brontë Adventure
See The Brontë Country
‘The Brontë Country’ is a name given to an area including Haworth in the South Pennine hills in West Bradford.
Do The Brontë Falls and Top Withens Walk
Brontë Falls is a colourful area with beautiful waterfalls and Top Withens is an old ruined farmhouse which is a feature in Emily Brontë’s book Wuthering Heights.
The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway
One of the most unique ways to see the Brontë Country is on a steam train from The Keighley and Worth Valley railway.
If you want to make it a full day trip, it is recommended to purchase the Rover day tickets. These tickets allow you unlimited travel for the full day. With these tickets you have the freedom to hop on and off all the stops along the line, they also include free entry into the Museum of Rail Travel and The Bahamas Locomotive Society Exhibition. In addition to this Return tickets and single tickets are available to purchase. For more information visit here
Visit The Haworth Parish Church
The Michael and All Angels Church is the third reconstructed Church on the site. The church was built between 1879 and 1881, though some parts including the tower survived earlier times. The church has historic ties with the Brontë family as Patrick Brontë (The father of the sisters) served as a minister here between 1820 and 1861.
The Old School Room
The Old School Room is located right next to the church and is one of the most historical buildings tied to the family. The School was built in 1832 by Patrick Brontë and all of his famous daughters taught here. For more information about the history visit here
Visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum
This is the home where the Brontë sisters grew up and wrote their famous books. It has been kept mostly the same since they lived here displaying many of their personal possessions. You can learn a lot about the sisters here from the artifacts and exhibitions. For more information you can visit here
