A Half day with Heathcliff


The Yorkshire moorland village of Haworth draws 1000's of visitors each year. The Parsonage Museum, at the heart of the village, is where Charlotte, Emily Jane, Anne and their wayward brother Branwell lived (and died) under the stern and eccentric gaze of their father, the Reverend Patrick Bronte. Our walking tour will take in the whole village, the Museum, the church were the family is buried, the old apothacary shop and maybe a pint in The Black Bull pub, Branwell's favourite haunt. If you have the energy afterwards we can take a walk on the moors to savour the atmosphere of Wuthering Heights.
This tour can be extended to a full day tour taking in many more places connected with The Bronte's. For instance: the house in Thorton village where they were born: Oakwell Hall (Fieldhead in Charlotte Bronte's 'Shirley' and The Red House Museum in Gomersall, the home of Charlotte's close friend Mary Taylor. Please ask for a quotation.

A Recent Review of this tour

Michael was a terrific guide - friendly, funny, informative and helpful. As we travelled from Australia and had limited time, our day trip from Leeds with a local guide to explore Bronte Country was just what we were looking for.
