Booking: Please press here to book with Eventbrite.
Join “111 Places in Yorkshire You Shouldn’t Miss” author and cruise ships speaker Ed Glinert on this magical walk around Haworth to meet some of the most memorable figures in English literature – Heathcliff, Cathy, the wimpishly wet Edgar, the brutish Hareton, the insufferable Pharisee Joseph, the egotistical Lockwood, residents of Gimmerton, home of Wuthering Heights, and setting for the wild, windy, wuthering moors inspired by the real-life Haworth in West Yorkshire.
We will tour the usual Haworth haunts:
The church where Jabez Branderham thunders his sermon on “Seventy Times Seven, and the First of the Seventy-First”.
The gradiently gruesome Main Street up which the Bronte family climbed when they first arrived locally in 1820.
The Bronte Parsonage museum.
The Gate of the Dead.
The church wall Rev Patrick Bronte used as his shooting range.
The steam railway station used in The Railway Children.
