Lanternlit Graveyard Tour

During the darker months when sensible folk are home, warm and cosy - and the locals have long since retired, safe behind their locked and bolted doors - dare you join your guide to explore by lanternlight the Graveyard believed to house the remains of almost 40,000 souls?

Lasting a bone chilling 60 mins every Saturday night during April, May, September and October. Lanterns provided.


Step Back In Time

A unique, non strenuous stroll around the village, offering the rare opportunity to rediscover the Haworth known to the Brontës.
The blackened stone buildings, polished by the Pennine rain. The ginnels and alleyways part of a forgotten time of overcrowded candlelit cottages, woolcombers, weavers, clogs, poverty and pride.
This stroll gives a glimpse of the area and offers a great introduction to any Brontë Parsonage Museum visit. Available most days between April and October. Lasting 35/40 mins. Ideal for visiting groups.

Ghost and Graveyard Tour

Once they walked among us, laughing, whispering, keeping watch. We knew them. We spoke to them. We took them by the hand. We loved them. They were our friends, our families our heroes.
Now they may wait for us on quiet evenings, along their shaded avenues. Dare you walk among the temples, towers and stone blocks which are their witness in this time after their time?
Lasting a bone chilling 60 mins, available most Saturday nights during June, July and August.
