Reasons to Visit

Bronte Guided Walk

Explore the landscape that gave voice to the Brontës. Their poetry and prose reflect its harsh beauty and the journey of their heroines who struggle to claim their place in the world. We can provide you with guides, walks, tours and stories.

Bronte Parsonage Museum

The Brontë collections at the Brontë Parsonage Museum are the largest and most important in the world and continue to inspire scholars, writers and artists. They offer a full programme for A level, and for GCSE studies they are introducing two new talks and workshops to help students and teachers get the most out of Jane Eyre.

Haworth Parish Church & The Old School Room

Situated between Haworth Parish Church and the Brontë Parsonage Museum the Old School Room is one of the most important historical buildings in the area. Built by Patrick Brontë in 1832 and taught at by all his famous children, it is an integral part of the Brontë landscape and story.

Top Withens & The Bronte Waterfall

This is a must for Brontë fans and lovers of the Pennine Moors. The Brontë children had a love of nature that stems from their time exploring and walking across the moors. This walk will take you up to Penistone Hill and across the moors to the top of the Bronte Falls and on up to Top Withens. We then carry on over the top of the moor and across the heater to stand on Ponden Kirk, Penistone Crag, and to listen for the echoes of Cathy and Heathcliff on the edge of the wind.

Jorvik Viking Education Centre

See houses, workshops and backyards of the Viking-Age city of Jorvik as it stood 1,000 years ago.

Original Ghost Walk York

Discover the hidden magic of the ancient city with a guided fun but authentic ghost walk.

York Castle Museum

The Castle Museum opened in 1938 and is located in what used to be the old Castle Prison. In 1068 William the Conqueror built a castle in York, which included a prison. Although the old prison is part of the museum, the castle building itself is now York Crown Court. Dick Turpin was one famous prisoner who was hanged in 1739 for horse stealing. The museum shows aspects of British daily life throughout the ages. Current exhibitions include Period Rooms, Toy Gallery, Kirkgate, and the 1960’s Gallery. There are thousands of objects on display at the museum as well as recreations of rooms, streets, prison cells and shops.

York Minster Learning Centre

You can choose from a range of workshops to find out about the past and present life of the Minster. Many topics link into the National Curriculum. The hour in the centre is based on inter-active teaching, which includes a multi-media presentation and (depending on your workshop choice) models, a working replica of a masons' loft, vestments and medieval stained glass on a light box. Students can also learn for themselves from a variety of relevant hands-on activities.
