Haworth Walks

'Escape to the Moor', a guided walk off the beaten track to all Bronte landmarks and beauty spots.

Escape To The Moor guided walks

Haworth Moor Guided Walk

“I wish I were a girl again, half savage and hardy, and free… I’m sure I should be myself were I once among the heather on those hills.”

– Cathy in Wuthering Heights, by Emily Bronte.

Walk in the footsteps of the Brontes to explore the wild Yorkshire Moor and discover the landscape that captivated and influenced their work.

Private bookings
Please note that I am no longer leading guided walks for the foreseeable future until the footpaths have been rebuilt and the moorland trails have had time to heal.

The Passion of Wuthering Heights

To truly understand the passion of Cathy and Heathcliffe, you need to be with them, on the moor at Wuthering Heights. Only then, will you fully appreciate the harsh and brutal reality of their existence and how it shaped the characters in Emily Bronte’s classic novel. And you’ll get to see the very window believed to have inspired the famous scene where Cathy cried “Let me in – let me in”!

No Risk Refunds!

We operate a ‘no-risk’ refund policy. If you need to cancel for whatever reason, you can either postpone or get a full refund. So, if rain is forecast and that’s not for you, you are in full control.

I Am No Longer Leading Moorland Guided Walks

The dog-friendly (on a lead) video guided walk takes away the hassle and worry so you can simply enjoy your day:

  • Go the very best route so you don’t miss anything.
  • No maps required – just turn up and enjoy the landscape.
  • You won’t get lost.
  • You will be safe – insured and outdoor 1st aid trained.
  • Learn about folk-lore, local history and how Haworth would been for the Brontes.

A Full Day Out

Walk at a steady, leisurely pace, mostly through narrow moorland trails and you’ll be taken to special places not usually frequented by visitors. There’ll be plenty of rest points, time to enjoy the views and to take photographs. 

Set off at 9am at the Wuthering Heights pub in Stanbury which is dog-friendly and serves tradition pub food, soups, etc. You’ll be back in time for a well-deserved lunch or drinks (not included), plus plenty of time to browse the many independent gift shops of Haworth. A full, fantastic day out!

Bronte Waterfall on Haworth Moor

Bronte Waterfall

The most popular destination of all the moorland locations and ideal for taking the kids for a picnic. You'll then be taken through beds of heather via less frequented. trails.

Top Withens - Wuthering Heights

Top Withens

The ruined farmhouse said to have been the location of the Earnshaw family house in Emily Bronte's classic novel, Wuthering Heights. It is a must-go to location for all Bronte enthusiasts.

Alcomden Stones on Haworth Moor

Alcomden Stones

A rocky outcrop believed by some to be a place of druid sacrifice and ancient ritual, with a large stone alter. It's a lovely place to sit for quiet and tranquility with stunning 360 degree views.

Ponden Kirk with The Fairy Cave

Ponden Kirk

A crag of gritstone rock jutting out of the hillside and believed to be the inspiration for Penistone Crags and the Fairy Cave, as mentioned in Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights.

School Parties

Need a local guide to lead your school party in 2023 so it’s safe, educational and fun?

Subject to government restrictions at the time, up to 40 children plus teachers can be taken from Haworth (or the youth hostel) to wherever you want to go. The route will also be weather-dependent, with safety taking precedent. We also have an educational, fun quiz for the children to complete along the route and this can be extended for further learning.

The school day rate is £350 or £20 per head for student age and includes a learning aid and assistance with your compliance and risk assessment requirements. Please email hello@bronteadventures.co.uk or call 07483835646.

Team Building

Need a team-building and strategy session? Then get your team out of the office and away from day to day activities.

There’s nothing like a hike to clear the head and bond colleagues, especially when the weather’s not at its best!

I can also facilitate lunch and a private room in Haworth for you to address your business issues. Please get in touch.
