We're Good To Go logoFor your peace of mind, the Haworth walk by Bronte Adventures is “We’re Good To Go” accredited by Visit England and the walk has been risk assessed, specifically relating to COVID-19.

Private Bookings

Want a private booking for your friends or family on a day and time that suits you? That’s fine. 

As well as an exhilarating moorland walk, I can create an afternoon itinerary based on what you enjoy. This could include a nice lunch, a mini-tour around the old part of Haworth, visits to other attractions, ending with the best coffee & cake in Haworth.

Rates are £120 for a morning/afternoon, or £190 for the full day (plus any ticket costs, refreshments, etc).

School Parties

Need a local guide to lead your school party in 2021 so it’s safe, educational and fun?

Subject to Covid legislation at the time, I can take up to 40 children plus teachers from Haworth (or the youth hostel) to wherever you want to go. The route will also be weather-dependent, with safety taking precedent. I also have a fun quiz for the children to complete along the route.

Full day rate of £190 applies for most trips and includes compliance and risk assessment contributions.

Team-building

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

There’s nothing like a 5 mile moorland walk to clear the head and bond colleagues, especially when the weather’s not at its best!

I can facilitate lunch and a private room in Haworth for you to address your business issues as well as lead the session, if required.
