Overview

The Passionate Brontes is an inspiring and entertaining stroll through the lives and times of Rev Patrick Bronte's remarkable family.The guide uses their poems, letters and novels to weave their story into the fabric of the village.This is a gentle stroll with a relaxed pace that lasts just over an hour and covers less than half a mile around the top of the village and finishes the story in the Bronte Chapel.

Johnnie Briggs is a treasure, as are his expert associates. If you are passionate enough to visit the places that inspired the Bronte books, it stands to reason you would want a guide to help bring it all to life. Johnnie Briggs is that man....More

Hello! I recently went on the tour of Haworth with Johnny and it was fantastic! I heard that you also do walks up to Top Withins--is that true? Is it possible to book for just one or do you only do larger groups to Top Withins? Thank you!
