Brontë Parsonage Museum
The Brontë Parsonage Museum is a writer's house museum maintained by the Brontë Society in honour of the Brontë sisters – Charlotte, Emily and Anne. The town and area has everything - from steep cobbled market streets to a steam locomotives nearby.
A must place to visit on your doorstep when you stay with us at September Cottage Haworth, the literary history and the ancestral home of the Bronte family, just a couple of minutes stroll away.
The home of the Bronte sisters is a must-see in Haworth and really helps understand their lives and work.
Go back in time to the cobbled streets of Haworth, visit quaint shops and lovely cafes. Finally, visit the museum where the famous Bronte sisters lived Bronte.org.uk

“You’ll only find Betty’s Tearooms in Yorkshire and this is the nearest one to us. Approximately 40 minutes drive away from the cottage but well worth it. Saturdays in the summer are especially special with the brass band playing in the band stand and a happy buzz of happy shoppers. The gift shop is delightful. Perfect for purchasing a gift or a foodie keep sake to remember the experience of the one and only ‘Bettys’. ”
