Haworth is famous for public footpaths in and around the village and some of the most popular walks are around the reservoirs and the Bronte Falls.

Walk along Bronte Way visiting the Bronte Bridge.

This walk leads out onto the bleak moors where you can visit Top Withins (rumoured to be the setting for Heathcliffe's farm in Wuthering Heights).

The Bronte Parsonage Museum, where the Bronte sisters were raised and authored their most famous novels, is just a few minutes' walk from the doorstep and guided walks are available.

Walking down the quaint cobbled main street, browsing through individual shops, pubs and tea rooms, you will eventually come to the Keighley and Worth Valley Steam Railway, made famous by the film The Railway Children.

Skipton is nearby with its delightful castle, while further afield is the Victorian spa town of Harrogate, boasting fabulous shops, an excellent theatre and the fantastic Royal Pump Room Museum.

About the location


Skipton 13 miles; Hebden Bridge 8 miles.

The small village of Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were inspired by the surrounding moorland to pen their novels, which have become classics of English Literature. Haworth is a village that time almost forgot, with its myriad of curiosity and antique shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere, all set against a framing backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. Nearby, the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, provides a lovely day out with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The area abounds with popular places to visit, including the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the National Railway Museum in York. The market town of Skipton, often fondly regarded as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
