Haworth is a village in West Yorkshire and surrounded by the Pennines and moorland. Due to the proximity the village manufactured wool and became an important industrial village during its hey day. Haworth, however, is now recognised for the Bronte's sisters who lived in the Haworth Parsonage from 1820 to 1861 which the Parsonage is now a museum celebrating and exhibiting their lives and works. It is worth walking up main street for its cobbled road and a variety of independent and unique shops and the quaint tearooms. There are number of guesthouses on the street for those who want to stay over.
You can access the village by bus from either Keighley or Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire or by riding on The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway which starts and ends from either Keighley or Oxenhope.
- Pros:Famous for the Brontes
- Cons:It can get crowded for a very small village!
- In a nutshell:Learning about the Brontes and walking on the cobbled main street.
This heritage railway is now privately run since 1964 when Dr Beeching closed the line and the railway received its fame... more travel advice
