Description:

The Bronte Parsonage Museum was the home of the world's most famous...

The Bronte Parsonage Museum was the home of the world's most famous literary family and the place where the great, romantic novels 'Jane Eyre' and 'Wuthering Heights' were written. 2016 marks the bicentenary of the birth of Charlotte Bronte and an ideal time to visit her former home. The house still evokes the atmosphere of the Brontes' time, and offers visitors a unique insight into their day-to-day lives and varied interests. The Rooms the Brontes used are largely unchanged and filled with a world-class collection of furniture, clothes and personal possessions, as well as a range of domestic artefacts used by the family. Whether you are a fan of the Brontes' writing or simply intrigued by remarkable people and their stories, you will find visiting the Parsonage an absorbing and unforgettable experience.

We had to visit the Bronte's home as Jane Eyre is an all time favourite of mine. It was interesting and informative. Fascinating to see their actual belongings and handwriting. Haworth was interesting to walk through as well

Very nicely done, with lots of explanation, history and atmosphere. Changing exhibitions, nice shop and friendly staff. Plenty parking nearby. Quite small, imagine it would be more difficult to see everything and soak up the atmosphere at peak times.

Fantastic! Have been twice already and can highly recommend it. It really gives a taste of what it must have been like. The guides go out of their way to be helpful and are very knowledgeable; making the trip even more interesting. A must go to place for any Bronte fan.

Visited accompanied by my wife who is the real fan of the Bronte's. Great atmosphere although very busy this half term. So sad with this family all bar the father dying so young. Interesting session with the character actor "looking for Bramwell" and giving a potted history of his lfe or at least some of his indiscretions. Thanks to that... More

Excellent museum with clear and concise information about the family - adds 'icing to the cake' if you saw the recent BBC play. The extension adds a new dimension. Downside is 'no toilets' BUT they are in the adjoining car park which is reasonably priced! Link the visit with afternoon tea at The Stirrup Eating House 103 Main Street Haworth!

Lovely to see the home of the Bronte family - with real artefacts. Being able to look around the house at your own leisure is helpful but plenty of people to ask questions to if necessary.

My wife was absolutely blown away by the Bronte Poarsonage Museum. It was one of the first museums established in the UK and contains so many relics from the Bronte family. It is a literary must see if you are in England.

Visited here with my sister and had a lovely time. Really interesting way to learn more about the Bronte family. Very informative volunteers too, just a shame the weather wouldn't allow a walk.

The Parsonage is an incredible archive of information and artefacts directly relating to the unique Bronte sisters. Even if you're unfamiliar with their story the museum tells it from beginning to beyond their deaths. It's set right in the heart of the old part of Haworth with good parking in a public car park just behind the parsonage. At £8.50... More
