Welcome to Haworth


Not surprisingly, the village is the beating heart of a cottage industry that has grown up around Brontë-linked tourism, but even without the literary associations Haworth is worth a visit. Its cobbled heritage high street has become a home for interesting independent vintage, craft and art shops selling work by local Yorkshire artisans, and it's possible to strike out onto the famed Brontë moors right from the parsonage's back door.
