Details

The Brontes are the world's most famous literary family and Haworth Parsonage was their home from 1820 to 1861. Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte were the authors of some of the best loved books in the English language.

The beautifully preserved museum has been opening its doors to visitors for over 75 years. Set between the unique village of Haworth, and the wild moorland beyond, this homely Georgian house still retains the atmosphere of the Brontes' time.

The rooms they once used are filled with their furniture, clothes and personal possessions and displays are changed annually, so you can always be sure of seeing something new.

PLEASE NOTE THE PARSONAGE WILL BE CLOSED 3rd - 31st JANUARY 2017 FOR ITS ANNUAL SPRING CLEAN. THE SHOP WILL BE OPEN 4th - 31st. See details below.
