Haworth is the epitome of Emily Brontë's legendary Wuthering Heights. There's an enchanting mystique to the wild and rugged moors that surround this beautiful village - you can practically hear the echoes of Catherine and Heathcliffe around every cobbled and heather strewn corner. Prepare to fall in love with Haworth and its living, breathing past.
Haworth's heart is its stunning Main Street. In summer it's a buzzing hive of activity with shops, crafts and tea rooms, and magnificent moorland views that compel visitors to pause for a photo opportunity practically every other step. During the winter months the wonderful rolling mists cloak the landscape, making easy to lose yourself in the famous Brontë Parsonage and immerse yourself in the history of its historic graveyard.
As well as some spectacular walking trails out to ruined farmhouses and waterfalls, Haworth boasts a fabulous old railway station. Stand on the bridge and watch the vintage steam trains puff their way in and out of the valley, or jump aboard and imagine you're in The Railway Children as you travel to the Edwardian Oakworth station - the location for the famous 1970s film.
Boots and wellies to the ready, it's always the perfect day to explore the beautiful South Pennine moorland around Haworth. Follow the path beside the parsonage and you'll be out the wilds in minutes, climbing up and out of the village and into a world of labyrinthine trails. Spot the signs to Top Withins - the inspiration for Earnshaw's house in Wuthering Heights - and make tracks to the beautiful Brontë Falls.
Of course there's more to Brontë Country than just Brontë. For a fascinating day of history and curiosities visit Cliffe Castle Museum, the once spectacular mansion of local Victorian millionaire H I Butterfield. The house is now a large museum and is filled with an array of glittering minerals, rocks and even a 2m long fossil newt. Don't miss the William Morris stained glass, original chandeliers and old toys.
Forgot to pack an extra fleece? Head over to the Bronte Weaving Shed for wonderful woollies and so much more. Restored to its former glory by the Edinburgh Woollen Mill, this is where the famous Bronte Tweed was woven by hand on looms back in the 1850s. There are fascinating working exhibitions to look around, including one on Timmy Feather, the last hand-loom weaver in Yorkshire.
Whether you're walking the cobbles or stomping the moors, it's always good to know there's a wide range of eateries to refresh your adventuring spirit. And you can literally take your pick in Haworth. Tea shops, cafes, inns and quirky restaurants can be found on Main Street and it's just a short walk to a myriad of English, Chinese, Indian and Italian delights that lie beyond.
There's a taste of both old and new in Haworth. Sample a Yorkshire parkin in a ye olde tea shop or pop into the old fashioned sweet shop at the top of Main Street and get nostalgic over jars of liquorice humbugs, coconut mushrooms and sherbet pips.
Follow in the footsteps of Patrick Branwell Brontë and sample the traditional ales at The Black Bull. But if you like lazy summer afternoons in a friendly beer garden, it's got to be Haworth Old Hall. Many a visitor has been drawn towards the laughter and chatter that surrounds this 16th century building and in winter there's no better place to warm your cockles than beside their roaring open fire.
Children of all ages will be enchanted by a day out on a Keighley & Worth Valley Railway steam train - times 100 if they've seen The Railway Children. Star of the famous Jenny Agutter film, the railway has also featured in many TV hits, including Last of the Summer Wine, Where The Heart Is and Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em. So buy a Family Day Rover and get ready to wave your flags from the window as you steam along through the countryside.
Kids will love exploring all of Haworth's nooks and crannies on one of the village's many guided walks. Older children will love being spooked on the popular 'Lanternlight Graveyard Tour' and little ones will adore 'Discover Christmas Past' if you're here for the festivities. But for a real family friendly walkaround, 'The Passionate Brontës' weaves its way through the stories, passions and key sights of this famous family.
When museums are filled with old steam locos and 1920s vintage buses, this is the recipe for a fun day out. Kids will make believe they're conductors or train drivers as you explore the wonderful collections at Ingrow Museum of Rail Travel and Keighley Bus Museum. And adults? Well, you can't help but replay scenes from old romantic movies as you wander amongst the original carriages that once graced our tracks.
No stay in Haworth is complete without a visit to the world famous Brontë Parsonage Museum. Home to the literary family from 1820 to 1861, Charlotte, Emily and Anne penned some of our best loved books and this beautifully preserved Georgian house gives a snapshot of their lives. Furniture, clothes and personal possessions give a fascinating insight into what it must have been like to live in 19th century Haworth.
If you've ever wondered what it would be like to live surrounded by beautiful oak furniture and exquisite tapestries, then step inside East Riddlesden Hall. This 17th century manor house has a relaxed and intimate feel, curiously at odds with its reputation as the keeper of tales of ghosts and dastardly deeds. Gaze through the Rose Windows and follow the aromatic scents of clematis and rose that lead you out into the award winning romantic gardens.
Part of Haworth's charm is its quirkiness. So it's no surprise that the village regularly plays host to an array of strange and unusual events. Depending on the time of year you visit, you can discover the tradition of the Scroggling the Holly Weekend, Pipes, Bows and Bells Weekend, or the Brontë Vintage Gathering. And if you're a lover of the 60s, micro-minis and leathers are all a go-go at the 60s weekend.
You certainly won't want to leave your purse or wallet at home because Haworth is a haven for specialist shopping. Cobbled Main Street is thriving with antiques and collectables, with old fashioned windows flaunting tempting displays of second hand books, Fairtrade gifts and gorgeous lingerie. Thank goodness there's an oasis of tea shops to greet you at the top of the hill!
If you're in the mood to treat yourself to a little something you're always in luck in Haworth.

Cross the road for a bag of childhood sweeties and eat them on the church steps before popping into the ever-popular parsonage gift shop.
Sometimes the way to any person's heart is through delicious foodie treats. Take them home, eat them in your accommodation, share them on the way back to the car.

See if you can find the extraordinary coffee and cake place at the bottom of Main Street - the owner can bake to order too!
