Haworth

Situated above the Worth Valley amid the bleak Pennine moors, Haworth is internationally famous for its connection with the Brontë sisters, who were born in Thornton, Bradford, but wrote most of their famous novels while living at Haworth Parsonage (now a museum owned and maintained by the Brontë Society), when their father was the parson at the adjacent Haworth church.

Other attractions include the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic preserved steam railway which has been used as a setting for numerous period films and TV series.

Throughout the year there are lots of events in Haworth, including the popular 1940s Weekend and Victorian Christmas events during the run-up to Christmas.
