Overview

Step back in time on this enthralling tour where we discover the history of three extraordinary sisters who grew up to produce some of the most powerful and dramatic novels in the English language. The Brontë Parsonage Museum houses the largest and most important collection of Brontëana and includes original manuscripts, personal letters and first editions. Other treats include a trip on the Worth Valley Railway through the Yorkshire countryside and we spend time in York with its mighty minster and historic city walls.

Your Excursions

Brontë Parsonage Museum
World renowned for the literary talent the Brontë sisters’ former home in the picturesque village of Haworth is now home to the Brontë Parsonage Museum and is owned and run by the Brontë Society, one of the oldest literary societies in the world, founded in 1893.

The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway
All aboard this heritage railway line which runs from Keighley to Oxenhope in West Yorkshire. We climb through the valley aboard our vintage train passing small Pennine villages on a line originally opened in 1867 to service 15 mills along its length.

York
You’ll never be short of things to do in this fascinating city with its tangle of narrow alleyways. The landmark minster is a masterpiece of stained glass windows and sculptured stone and an absolute ‘must see’. Sip a drink by the river, take a boat trip on the River Ouse or see the collection of trains at the National Railway Museum.

Jurys Inn Bradford

In the heart of the city close to City Park the Jurys Inn Bradford is just a short walk from the Broadway Shopping Centre. It offers guests comfortable and stylish accommodation and you can relax in the bar and watch the world go by with floor to ceiling windows.
