Latest reviews | Events in Haworth | 10 Places to Stay

From 1820 the Pennine village of Haworth, near Bradford, was home to the Bronte sisters, whose father was curate at the local church. There is plenty more to the village than the Bronte sisters, but inevitably the vast majority of visitors to the settlement come because of its literary associations. The places that fans of Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre, The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and so on will not want to miss are numerous: the parsonage, where the family lived – this is now the Bronte Museum; the church that was the reason for the family to move from nearby Thornton, where they lived previously, and where Charlotte and Emily are buried (in a vault rather than the churchyard); the Black Bull pub, where the sisters’ less talented brother drank himself into oblivion on a regular basis; and the apothecary which in the time of the Bronte quite legally supplied Branwell with the drugs his other addiction – to opium – required. To feel a link to the novels and their authors, however, it is probably better to venture outside the village, onto the bleak moors which set the tone for so much of their oeuvre. There are various walks marked, including the 40 mile Bronte Way for the really enthusiastic, taking in other places linked to the authors. It is strange that the Bronte sisters should have died of tuberculosis, living as they did in a place with no lack of fresh air blowing across the hilltop village, and with the lure of long healthy walks on the moors close by. Look beyond the Bronte merchandise and memorabilia, some of which can be sadly lacking in taste, and enjoy a place with real character, dark stone cottages and cobbled streets, and the looming architecture of St Michael and All Angels’ church. If you need refreshment there is no shortage of venues in the village either. Nearby there are the attractions of Bradford, and further afield of Leeds, but within easier reach is the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, another sight to transport you back to past times with its steam locos and preserved railway buildings.
