The Yorkshire Dales: Brontë Sisters' Parsonage & Brimham Rocks
The Yorkshire Dales: Brontë Sisters' Parsonage & Brimham Rocks - date tbc for academic year 2019-20
Come and visit the home of the famous Victorian writers and experience the dramatic landscape of the Yorkshire Dales!
The Brontë Parsonage Museum is a writer's house museum maintained by the Brontë Society in honour of the Brontë sisters – Charlotte, Emily and Anne. The museum is in the former Brontë family home, the parsonage in Haworth, West Yorkshire, England, where the sisters spent most of their lives and wrote their famous novels.
Their stories immediately attracted attention for their passion and originality. Charlotte's ‘Jane Eyre’ was the first to know success, while Emily's ‘Wuthering Heights’, Anne's ‘The Tenant of Wildfell Hall’ and other works were later to be accepted as masterpieces of literature.
The natural spectacle of Brimham Rocks, with its giant rock formations, was created by an immense river 100 million years before the first dinosaurs walked the earth, and a visit to this amazing landscape is truly a journey into pre-history.
The cost of this trip is £35, whereas it would cost around £50 to book independently.
Visit the Brontë Society website for more information on the Brontë Sisters and the Brontë Parsonage.
