What we offer
The Bront? Parsonage Museum is a great place for educational visits. Set in the historic village of Haworth and in the middle of the moors, the setting alone is wonderful. The Parsonage itself is an atmospheric recreation of the home of this amazing family, and we have a fantastic collection. The workshops make the most of these assets, with varied curriculum linked activities for all ages, from drama to guided walks to academic talks. These are delivered by experienced enthusiastic staff, who will help your pupils have an enjoyable day, of real educational value. Our enthusiastic team will help you really get the most out of your visit.

A big thank you to you for the admin, and to Sue for a great talk and interesting walk around town. It was EVEN better than previous years! We all learned a lot, and the students felt inspired to go on and do the reading over the summer, which was the object of the visit. Julie Rushton, Ulverston Victoria High School
