Bronte Parsonage Museum

Church Street, Haworth, Keighley, West Yorkshire, BD22 8DR

It’s hard to believe that literary milestones such as Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall were penned in the rather unassuming Yorkshire village of Haworth. But the Bronte Parsonage Museum, filled with the family's furniture, clothes and personal possessions, quickly conjures up the quiet, modest world of this accomplished family and transports you back through time to imagine Charlotte, Emily and Anne looking out over the brooding Pennine moors and creating their masterpieces of fiction. Look out for their tiny manuscript books where handwritten versions of their work can be seen alongside drawings, sketches and letters. The table where the novels were written is permanently on display but exhibitions of personal possessions and other artefacts are changed regularly, so it’s worth more than one visit!.

Wonderful celebration of the most extraordinary family in English literature.
I was fortunate enough to be guided through both the parsonage and the lives of the Brontës by the brilliant Amy, one of the museum's curators.
I can highly recommend taking a VIP tour.

Wonderful tribute to the Bronte family and their art and literary contributions! Loved every bit! The costumes from the recent movie really contribute to the collection in setting a tone of the period, too!

Fascinating place to look round. Couldn't believe how many of the Brontes' possessions were on display plus costumes from the BBC drama. One lady was particularly knowledgeable and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Beautiful, inspiring and spine chilling, felt truly like stepping back in time, both my husband and I loved it, we will definitely visit again, we can't recommend enough what a hidden gem this place is, not just the museum but also the village, it's just gorgeous.

This was our 3rd time at the Bronte Paronage and never get tired of going through the house,there always something different to to see what you may have missed the last time
We also find the Church lovely to spend some time in also,very quite and peaceful .
Howarth is also a fascinating place somehow very magical when you walk around the cobbled streets and you think about the Bronte Sisters walking those same cobbles all those hundreds of years ago.
Anybody who has never been go,! you won't be disappointed well worth a visit ,and you will need to go back.

I am still mesmerized with my visit to the Museum. To actually see the very table where they sat and wrote their books, which I am all going to read. To enter the house where they all, except Anne, died so tragically young. To read their description of what life was like in their days. Their awareness of injustice and the differences in social classes is genius.

Our trip yesterday was the stuff of dreams for me. I know when you build something up in your mind then you can end up feeling a bit disappointed but this fulfilled all my expectations- and then some. I was head over heels as soon as we hit Brontë country - such overwhelming beauty. The museum staff were wonderful and my boy and I are so chuffed to have written a line for the Wuthering Heights project. Processing being in their actual home was mind blowing.
Haworth itself couldn't be any more gorgeous if it tried.
One of the greatest compliments I can give you is that, on the way there, my 11yo son was not brimming with joy about the prospect of another museum. On the way out he said 'I'd definitely come back here' :)
Me too - already planning another trip.

I have been absolutely blown away by this wonderful home. I say home because that's exactly how it feels. I cannot praise the guides highly enough for their devotion and knowledge that they share so freely. Being a huge Bronte fan I wasn't sure what to expect but I can say hand on heart that the Parsonage is something so very special and I shall be eternally grateful to all those who work so hard to preserve not only the Parsonage but the lives and history of the Bronte family.

So today I visited Bronte Parsonage Museum and almost died of fangirling. Oh my goodness, it's everything I thought it would be and oh so much more. I was screaming internally the whole time I was there! Being able to step into the dinning room where Bronte sisters wrote some of my favorite books of all time was surreal. I also visited Bronte Waterfall and Top Withens. I could imagine Charlotte, Emily and Anne so clearly. They spent their days wandering this exact route and seeing this exact landscape. It was haunting, desolate and so inspiring.
It was such an enjoyable experience and I just can't recommend Haworth enough for anyone who appreciates the Brontes.
Oh, and 'labas' to that one staff member who speaks Lithuanian!
