THE BRONTËS OF HAWORTH Tour
In a small Yorkshire village surrounded by windswept moors, three sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë produced some of the most widely read novels in the world, including the literary
greats 'Wuthering Heights' and 'Jane Eyre'.
Tour highlights include:
- The Brontë Parsonage in Haworth, where the sisters lived and their father was Vicar. The rooms where they wrote their famous works are still filled with their furniture, clothes and possessions.
- St Michael and All Angels Church, where all the Brontës apart from Anne are buried in the family vault.
- Picturesque Haworth, with its cobbled streets and quirky vintage and gifts shops and The Black Bull pub, frequented by Bramwell Brontë.
- The moorland farm of Top Withens, believed to be the site of 'Wuthering Heights' and Ponden Hall, inspriration for 'Thrushcross Grange'.
- Brontë Falls and Brontë Stone Chair on the moors, where they sat writing.
- Red House, the model for 'Briarmains' in Charlotte's novel 'Shirley', with Victorian rooms and recreated gardens.
- Oakwell Hall, which inspired 'Fieldhead' in 'Shirley' and Thornton, where the Brontës were born.
- The beautiful walled city of York, proud bastion of the north, with its stunning architecture, cobbled streets and attractions such as York Minster, the Yorvik Viking Centre and Clifford's Tower built by William the Conqueror.
