Step back in time in the Pennine village of Haworth

Bronte Parsonage, Haworth Located in the heart of Brontë Country Haworth and its small Georgian Parsonage, home of the Brontë sisters. Now a museum, cared for by the Brontë Society, it is well worth a visit. Wander around Haworth’s cobbled streets and lanes, or take a walk on the surrounding moors, including Top Withens, the inspiration for Wuthering Heights, and feel the atmosphere which inspired the Brontës.

Relive the Age of Steam at Keighley and Worth Valley RailwayTravel to Haworth on a steam train with the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, often featured in films (famously in The Railway Children) and TV. There is a regular timetable, as well as specialist weekends and childrens’ events. The Vintage Railway Carriage Museum at Ingrow has an outstanding collection. Discover more about brewing at the independent family-run Worth Brewery. 

East Riddlesden HallThe National Trust owned East Riddlesden Hall is a 17th century manor house, with a fine collection of Yorkshire oak furniture, embroidery and plasterwork ceilings. Cliffe Castle, once the home of wealthy local wool merchant, is set in parkland and gardens and has an interesting museum.

At the heart of the nearby town of Keighley is the modern Airedale Shopping Centre. Nearby Cavendish Street with its Edwardian canopy, Cavendish Court in its cobbled indoor courtyard, and the famous Indoor Market reflect the wide range of that Keighley has to offer.

Keighley StationThe Keighley Festival and Temple Street Fair in June, Gala in August and Keighley Show and Beer Festival in September are special attractions. The Picture House and Playhouse offer a range of entertainments.

Within Victoria Park is Keighley’s modern leisure centre, with indoor heated pool and slide, gym and sports hall. Further up the road is Cougar Park, home of the Keighley Cougars Rugby League Football Club.
