The Brontë siblings – Charlotte, Emily, Anne and Branwell – are some of the best loved authors in British literature. They grew up in Haworth, West Yorkshire, in the 19th century and between them wrote classics including Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. Although brought up in a small village and in a confined household – the siblings all worked in the same room – the Brontës wrote works of epic proportions. The home they lived in, the parsonage in Haworth, is now a museum run by the Brontë Society. One of the oldest literary societies in the world, it both runs the Bronte Parsonage Museum and holds regular events that are a must-visit for fans of the Brontës and literature.
The Brontës are infamous for their isolated lifestyles, and you can see where they lived and worked in the museum and library. Explore the kitchen, dining room, studies, studios and bedrooms, then visit the library – which contains the world’s most comprehensive collection of manuscripts, letters and notes by the family.
Emily Brontë in particular loved the Yorkshire countryside, and it plays a huge part in her revered novel Wuthering Heights. Bring a book to the Brontë Meadow near the museum and follow in the footsteps of the Brontës themselves!
Running until the end of 2016, this exhibition celebrates Charlotte Bronte’s bicentenary year with a spectacular exhibition of Charlotte’s work, belongings and letters.
There’s more to see and do in the village of Haworth, including the St Michael and All Angels church, where all the Brontës but Anne are buried, the Gothic Cliffe Castle or the 17th century East Riddlesden Hall manor house.
