Its a favorite of mine in honesty. The house has strong Bronte connections but the Taylor family who owned it are fascinating. The 1830's garden is delightful and you can now get a cup of tea or coffee which is great.

well worth a visit - a lovely house structurally, furnished in the style of the last family to live there. Some interesting history of Mary Taylor and Charlotte Bronte too.

Charlotte Brontë visited often and featured Red House in her novel "Shirley". Includes period rooms, enchanting recreated gardens and exhibitions in restored outbuildings. Each of the rooms brings you closer... More

A great little museum not far from me. Great for smaller kids because theirs a playground and loads of things to do. Needs somewhere to get a drink though :)
