A visit to West Yorkshire and the village of Haworth is very enjoyable, particularly if interested if old literature and novels.

This is the village that was home to the Bronte family. It has a cobbled main street which runs steeply down to Bridgehouse Beck. The Bronte family moved to the village parsonage in 1820. Emily Bronte who wrote Withering Heights died at the age of 30 and Charlotte Bronte who wrote Jane Eyre died aged 38.

The Parsonage museum will give you a good insight into the lives of this family, the Parsonage is furnished with many personal possessions and as it would have been when the Bronte family lived there.

There are many shops for you to browse around and plenty of cafes and restaurants for food and refreshments. If you like walking there are some interesting walks from here that are associated with the Bronte Family and the book Withering Heights. You will be able to find out more details about the walks from the Tourist Information Centre.

If you are a steam train enthusiast you may enjoy seeing the trains, the Keighley and Worth Valley Railways operate from here trains run hourly at weekends.

The station is approximately 10 minutes walk from the Parsonage. There is plenty of accommodation and a Youth Hostel in the area but in the summer months it is advisable to book in advance of your visit to avoid disappointment.
