Full description
This tour takes you through three counties to the village of Haworth, where the Bronte’s lived, set in the bleak moorland landscape of North Yorkshire. You will drive through the beautiful Yorkshire Dales scenery for a stop in the ageless village of Clapham. See the infamous school attended by the Bronte sisters which became the inspiration for Lowood school in Jane Eyre. Following in the Charlotte Bronte’s footsteps, you can visit the pretty village of Wycoller with its ruinous hall, the model for Ferndean Manor in Jane Eyre. Discover the places the Bronte’s knew and the landscape which inspired them.

Following this, explore the Bronte Parsonage, where Charlotte, Emily, Anne and Branwell lived with their father, Reverand Patrick Bronte. See where they sat and wrote Wuthering Heights, Jane Eyre and The Tennant of Wildfell Hall, and discover how they lived and what their lives were like in industrial Yorkshire where death was constantly on the doorstep and freedom was on the moors.

Wander down the high street of Haworth, having hardly changed since the Bronte’s walked here 150 years ago. See the Black Bull Inn where Branwell drank, and the old apothecary where he bought laudanum. Set your imagination free, breathe the chilly moorland air and gaze over the wild, dramatic landscape of Wuthering Heights. Discover the freedoms and restrictions, the successes and failures, the loves and losses endured in the world of Victorian England. This was a place which fashioned the passionate, emotional and tragic lives of the world’s most famous literary family.
