Interesting, Historical and Scenic village - lots of photo opps!
Can be very busy indeed
Neat and tidy - a quintessential Victorian village.
The Keighley & Worth Valley Railway is a 1950'2 style steam railway.It's main locomotive workshops are based in the former goods yard which is just along the road from Haworth station.It cost £10 to go to Keighly and back, a Journey of about 20 to 25 minutes or you can get a all day ticket for only slightly more.It was a wonderful experience, I...more
Each May the village returns to the 1940s when the annual 1940s weekend takes place. Lots of people in 1940s clothing - both civilian and military, the shops and pubs and cafes take on a wartime appearance and Main Street and the park are a mass of people. In the park is a market, dancing and a wartime variety show.Usually the third weekend in May.more
There's no treasure but it is an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon and a good way of getting to know your way around Haworth. It's a 2½ mile route starting outside Cobbles and Clay on Main Street which takes you round the popular tourist parts (Main Street, Bronte Parsonage, Keighley Worth Valley Railway) as well as some of the more out of the...more
St Michael and All Angels church in Haworth is the third building of religious significance to stand on this site, with the first Haworth Chapel dating back to the 14th and 15th Centuries although the present buildings foundation stone was laid on Christmas day in 1879 although the base of the tower dates back to an earlier chapel from 1488.In 1820...more
The Parsonage was the home of the Bronte Sisters grew up while their father was the Parson at the adjacent church. It was here that they wrote most of their famous novels, It is now a museum owned and maintained by the Bronte Society. We did not go inside as the entry was I thought, quite expensive.Entry Fees 2011Standard Admission £6.80Senior...more
Because of the car park clamping scandel that no one warns you about - when you visit this place I would actually avoid the place altogether.

One of the things I love about Haworth is that everything is named after the Bronte sisters books or characters.Villette is a popular cafe named after one of Charlotte Bronte's novels.The cafe serves traditional Yorkshire food.My favourite is the "fat rascal" which is a large scone made with currants and candid peel.These old fashioned favourites,...more
I have always loved the Edinburgh mill shops. The one in Haworth was a particular favourite. Now I love it the best. I can buy delicious shortbread, lovely jam in pretty jars, soft woollen hoodies and now top it off with a delicious Costa latte........does life get any better. lattemore
This is another great pub, a sign on the wall tells us that it's history goes back to the 17th century when the building belonged to the Lord of the Manor before being sold in 1763. In 1841 a friend of Branwell Bronte was the inkeeper. The pub has a unusual history, the rooms upstairs were once the Monorial Courts whilst the local undertaker used...more
This is a great Old Pub in the centree of the village just to the right as you come from the church. It has probably hardly changed since Branwell Bronte (brother of the famous Bronte Sisters) used to spend his time, There is a chair that is said to be the one he always sat in.The Pub with it's Low ceilings, Great wooden beams and wood panelling...more
Fish and chips are Britain’s national dish. The fish and chips from here are delicious. As you can see from the photo, they are very popular. The prices are about average. £1.20 for chips and £2.60 for Haddock.There is also a small restaurant attached to the take away. The fish was really white and fluffy.more
It is some years since I have been here to eat and I would have gone on my last visit but I did want to try the Black Bull and so gave it a miss. However the last visit was only three years ago and it was a good place for a coffee and light lunch. A cafe bar in the day and a restaurant at night.I have taken this narrative from the website :-Tucked...more
From nearby Keighley - a good value ticket if you would like to explore from Keighley by train the North East Rover may be of use. This ticket offers 197 miles of travel on the East Coast Mainline from Retford to Berwick on Tweed. The area covered is bounded by Newcastle - Carlisle - Settle - Bradford - Halifax - Huddersfield - Sheffield - Retford...more
This great old fashioned Apothecary is the one that Branwell Bronte would buy his Opium from before going to smoke and drink in The Black Bull.Its really nice inside and they have a lovely range of traditional products and remedies, the owners are very friendly and will be glad to offer you advice or just chat!more
This is England, and renowned for its pubs, so do what the locals do and pop in and have a drink.
Here I am trying to sneak in unobtrusively but was caught on camera!!! :)
Visitors should note that there are no banks in the village - the nearest banks are in Keighley. I know many people have been caught out expecting a popular tourist village to have a bank but this is not the case.There is however a post office at the top of Main Street and this is open every day with the exception of Wednesday afternoon, Saturday...more
DO NOT PARK in this car park opposite the Edinburgh Woollen Mill. The Clampers here 'set up' parking spaces (ie: park two vehicles with a space in the middle so it appears a usual parking space). They watch you park up whilst sitting in the Hyundai car parked up next to the hut. They later remove one of the cars and say you have parked out of a...more
Please avoid Haworth, for years now there has been a privalty run car park in opertaion that scares disbaled people - the elderly, anyone with large thuggish men intimidatng unsuspecting people into paying a £75 fine to get thier car released from a clamp. They have people working for them who:1) Drive out as you drive in and offer you thier ticket...more
Hello this is the main car park you see as you enter the town, its visible and its opp the Edinburgh Woollen Mill shop, its called the " changegate" car park.
They have been named and shamed on many a TV program, been spoken about in our house of commons, etc etc.
the reason is not only the clamping that is indiscriminate but they employ all sorts of tricks to get you.
They have people waiting for you to come in, they will drive out and stop and offer you their ticket....
they will fiddle with the clock to make you out of time
they use thier own vehicles to push you out of the parking bay boundaries and will do anything else to make sure you get a 75 pound clamp on your car!
Our b&B never warned us of this car park and not only is the fine steep and unfair but the men in there scare people, they are large and aggressive thugs and yet no pne in the village does anything about it.
Unique Suggestions: Do not go there, to this car park there are council run carpars - drive around, ask people, but do not park in the change gate car park. You will get clamped and it will ruin your experience.
Fun Alternatives: There are several other larger and properly run car parks in the village, not as easy to find as the rouge one, but they are there, drive around and ask people if neccasry but do not park in the rough stone un even car park oppostite the edinburgh woollen mill.
Living on the edge of the Bronte Moors this has been my back yard for 36 years...free to go out and play anytime in my back yard. Its not all about the Bronte's but thank you those lovely ladies to put the moors on the map. I am sure they haven't change much in over 100 years but the glaciers that forged this landscape has left some gems to be...more

The Bronte Family vault is inside the HAWORTH PARISH CHURCH and there, beneath an inscribed stone and commemorative plaque, the whole family apart from Anne(who lies at Scarborough) is buried. See also the Bronte' Memorial Chapel and the collection of documents concerning notable events in the family's life. The Bronte' sisters' father was the...more
The steep village street is paved with stone setts and lined with shops, galleries, inns and cafe's - many converted from cottages originally used by hand-loom weavers which was once the staple industry of Haworth. At the top of MAIN STREET are the old village stocks where local offenders were once punished.more
