Discover Anne Lister 'Gentleman Jack'

BOOK DIRECT BY CALLING 01422 240024
Or book securely online at www.holdsworthhouse.co.uk



The 2019 HBO/BBC TV series about 19th century diarist Anne Lister was filmed at Shibden Hall in Halifax, her former home.



The show, entitled Gentleman Jack, is a period drama written by Sally Wainwright who also wrote Last Tango in Halifax, Happy Valley all filmed in the area.



Stay on our Anne Lister Discovery Break and you can see where Gentleman Jack was filmed. Unearth the true story of diarist, landowner and socialite who lived at Shibden Hall in the 1800s with her lover Ann Walker.



Anne Lister Discovery Break Includes:
Welcome drink and cream tea on arrival day at Holdsworth House
Overnight stay for two people sharing a room
Entrance tickets to Shibden Hall for two adults
£30 per person towards dinner in the Holdsworth House restaurant
Full Yorkshire breakfast with locally sourced produce
Late check out to 12 noon
Free WIFI and FREE car parking at the hotel
Rooms from £159 per night in a Snug Double, upgrades to House Rooms or Suites may be available



Holdsworth House is a manor with many period similarities to Shibden Hall. In fact, when Anne Lister lived at Shibden Hall, the wealthy landowner Elizabeth Wadsworth lived at Holdsworth House.



Wadsworth also kept detailed diaries and both Wadsworth and Lister’s diaries are kept on deposit at West Yorkshire Archive Service, and both document life in the early 1800s; the similarities are spine-tingling. We’ve discovered that Lister and Wadsworth knew of each other, and Wadsworth also knew Patrick Bronte.
