Bronte Parsonage Museum
Home of the Brontës, where Charlotte, Emily and Anne wrote their classic novels.
Bronte Parsonage Museum - a global treasure
The Bronte Parsonage Museum houses the world’s largest collection of Brontë furniture, clothes and personal possessions.
Items on display include letters, Emily’s paint box, Charlotte’s wedding bonnet and pebbles collected by Anne.
The museum presents an annual programme of exhibitions, contemporary arts events and family activities.
The house remains as the family would have known it: the father’s study, with its piano and view of the church; the dark and rather cramped kitchen; and the little bedrooms.
The most evocative space is the dining room, as this is where the Bronte sisters worked, long after their father had gone to bed, walking around the table, helping each other with their writing.
From Humble Beginnings
The Parsonage was the home of the Brontë family from 1820 to 1861.
In 1847, Charlotte published Jane Eyre, Anne published Agnes Grey and Emily published Wuthering Heights, but within eight years all three had died, outliving their loving father.
Haworth soon became a place on interest to visit and their work continues to inspire artists, television and film productions world-wide. To fully appreciate the context of the sisters writing, walk in their footsteps across the moor by booking a guided Haworth walk.
