High up in the Pennines the sisters penned their romantic novels. They lived in the village of Haworth, which has changed little since the sisters lived, and many of their inspirations can still be viewed today.

Outside Haworth you will come across Top Withens, a ruined farmhouse which is said to have been the inspiration for the Earnshaw house in Wuthering Heights. Continue a bit further and you will come across The Brontë Falls, a picturesque spot where the sisters were said to visit for inspiration. Here you can also sit in a small chair shaped rock, and gather your thoughts, as it is said Emily Brontë did the same all those years before.

On your return to the village, don’t forget to visit the Brontë Parsonage. It is preserved as it would have been in the Brontë's time, full of their personal possessions and a fascinating exhibition on their lives.
