    The romantic literary moniker given to the area of the south Pennine hills that lies to the west of Bradford, the rugged, natural beauty of the landscape of ‘Brontë Country’ is, indeed, reflected in much of the work of the three Brontë sisters who lived and wrote in the village of Haworth.  

    Things to do in Brontë Country
    Some of the most popular activities for visitors to the local area are undoubtedly related to locations associated with the work of the Brontës, but the local landscape also offers many opportunities for less cerebral pursuits.

    The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway is a popular means by which to explore the area. The Cow and Calf Rocks near Ilkley attract rock climbers and offer spectacular views for the more energetic visitor. Local walks range from light, urban literary tours to more serious countryside excursions across the moors. A variety of well established trails exist for walkers, including the Worth Way, an eleven mile circular walk that runs between Keighley and the village of Oxenhope. Two National Cycle Routes wind their way through the quiet country lanes and by-ways, whilst horse-riders are encouraged to follow ‘trade’ routes once trodden by the packhorse trains carrying cloth across the Pennine moors.

    Top Destinations

    Haworth– Known worldwide as the home of the Brontë family, the village is the location of the Brontë Parsonage Museum, and the ‘must-see’ destination for visitors and literary aficionados. 

    Thornton – On the outskirts of Bradford, this West Yorkshire village was the birthplace of the Brontë Sisters and their brother Branwell. Their father was the rector of Thornton church, and the house where the family once lived is open to visitors by appointment.

    Saltaire – A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the village of Saltaire was planned and built by Victorian mill owner Sir Titus Salt as a home for his mill working employees. This beautifully preserved Victorian industrial village now attracts flocks of visitors to view its magnificent architecture. As a further draw for art lovers, the village has also been more recently enhanced with one of the largest collections of art by David Hockney; the world famous artist was born in nearby Bradford.

    Ilkley – A Victorian spa town, Ilkley offers an appealing range of tea rooms, restaurants and shops, in addition to concert and theatrical events. The nearby Ilkley Moor is a popular destination for walkers, as well as being a registered SSSI for the upland habitat that it offers ground-nesting birds.

    Keighley – Site of the terminus of a popular heritage steam line: the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, this south Pennine town lies amidst the fine countryside folds of the Airedale and Keighley Moors. At East Riddlesden Hall, the National Trust property sits in romantic and award-winning gardens; the intimate 17th century manor house itself boasts an equally impressive past, much of which is reflected within the fabric of the building, with exquisite embroideries and imposing oak furnishings.

    Bradford – Recently named as a UNESCO City of Film, Bradford is home to the National Media Museum, as well as being the venue for perhaps more prosaically-focused exhibits within the Bradford Industrial Museum and the Cartwright Hall Art Gallery. Once a small market town, the city had become the wool capital of the world by the mid 1800s; still internationally famous for its stunning Victorian architecture, Bradford can also boast a cathedral that is over 500 years old.
