Enjoy an afternoon tea in the house the Brontës loved
Bradford, West Yorkshire
Enjoy a luxurious afternoon tea at the historic house the Brontës knew and loved, then take a tour of the real-life setting for Wuthering Heights.
Tucked away high up on the moors, Ponden Hall is the historic house the Brontës walked to when they wanted to escape Haworth for the day. Branwell Brontë sketched the fireplace and wrote a short story about it. Emily used it as the inspiration for her great fictional novel, Wuthering Heights.
Today you can enjoy a luxurious tea in the beamed flagstone hall, with its mullioned windows. Savour scones, smoked salmon sandwiches, a pot Yorkshire tea and your choice of a traditional English teatime cake.
A personal tour then gives a private view of this Jacobean heritage attraction, taking in the famous library, the window Cathy’s ghost clawed at in Wuthering Heights, desperate to get back to her love Heathcliff, and a wealth of other Brontë connections.
