“A must see for every Wuthering Heights passionale”
Review of Top Withens

Top Withens
Ranked #4 of 16 things to do in Haworth

Attraction details
Reviewed 11 April 2014

I am in love with Wuthering Heights so I decided to visit Haworth in order to see the lovely town and the Bronte's house. I didn't know that behind the church there's the footpath that leads you to the amazing and stunning heather moors that inspired Emily Bronte for her novel! Talking to some other walkers, I knew about Top Withens that is supposed to be the source of inspiration for the description of Wuthering Height house even though the informative claque on the wall says that the house doesn't seem to be similar to the one described in the novel.
Anyway, it is a must see for everyone passionate about this story and for every landscape lover because the circolar walk that starts in Haworth will lead you through fantastic and unbelievable pink and purple fields that will make you feel connected to the nature!

Isolated 4 miles east of Haworth in the Pennine hills very peaceful windswept for the hardy walker. A haunting experience go there via the waterfalls best after rain it's like a torrent valley down in waterfall valley then up to Withins can be an exhilarating walk but worth it.

The walk to top withen is mostly up but the views are just amazing which makes the walk worth while a rest at the waterfalls is a perfect photo spot

We did the 10km walk around the moors to Top Withins - it was a fantastic walk, definitely worth it. Although, the day we went was lovely and sunny, still pretty windy. It may not be as enjoyable in the rain.

Stunning walk. We took our time checking out the beautiful scenery on the way.
The walk takes you past the Parsonage and cemetery as well as the Bronte waterfall which is handy.
Take a picnic to enjoy at the top - a great place to take in the view.
