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.
Tour through time
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.
The way we used to travel
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.
