Explore the stunning countryside of Brontë Country by hopping on the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway. This popular five mile (8km) heritage rail experience will take you back in time to a golden age of travel.

Hear the toot of the whistle and see the telltale puffs of smoke as you set off through the scenery immortalised by the famous 19th century writers Charlotte, Emily and Anne Brontë.

You’ll also see the picturesque setting of the classic 1970 film The Railway Children, before arriving in Howarth, the village where the Brontë sisters lived.

There are numerous events to enjoy on the railway throughout the year, from a delightful afternoon tea on the White Rose Pullman Dining Train, to the annual Beer and Music Festival.

Haworth station is eight miles (13km) west of Bradford, West Yorkshire. A direct train from London to Bradford takes approximately 3 hours 20 minutes.
