This tour takes you through three counties to the village of Haworth and the parsonage where the Bronte sisters lived with their father, set in the bleak moorland landscape of North Yorkshire.

What to expect?

Itinerary

  • Brontë Parsonage Museum & Graveyard to see where the Rev. Patrick Brontë and his children Branwell, Charlotte, Emily and Anne lived and died. The rooms where they wrote their famous works are still filled with their furniture, clothes, and possessions.
  • Haworth with its evocative cobbled streets and quirky vintage shops, including The Black Bull pub, frequented by Bramwell Brontë.
  • Wycoller Hall, the romantic ruin which was the inspiration for "Ferndean Manor" of Jane Eyre
  • St Michael and All Angels Church, where all the Brontës except Anne are buried in the family vault.
  • The wild Pennine moors, the haunt of the Brontës from childhood and the dramatic backdrop to their literary lives.
  • Cowan Bridge, the location of the infamous Clergy Daughter's School, the inspiration for "Lowood School" in Charlotte Bronte's "Jane Eyre".
  • Ponden Hall, the inspiration for "Thrushcross Grange" in Emily Brontë's "Wuthering Heights".
  • The beautiful countryside of Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, so very different from Cumbria's fells and lakes.
