Haworth's literary prodigies

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.

Dark deeds and pink roses

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.

Bells and whistles

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.
