A visit to Haworth is about as close as it’s possible to get to turning back time to days gone by. This quiet village in the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales has changed little since it was home to the famous Bronte sisters, and its attractions make discovering more about its history great fun for the whole family.
The Bronte Parsonage Museum is the former home of the Bronte’s, and as it’s pretty much as it was when it was the family home it’s a lovely way for fans to get a glimpse into what life would have been like for the sisters. Bronte Walks operate guided walks throughout the year for those keen to learn more about the village’s connection with the writers, and it’s easy to imagine them wandering the village streets while they were growing up.
Who remembers The Railway Children? Well those of you that do will recognise quite a lot of the landscape as you make your way around the area as it was the setting for the classic film, and if you hop aboard the Keighley and Worth Railway you’ll chug your way back in time to the golden era of steam.
