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 superb walking guide, wonderful storyteller, and such a friendly, warm person. He took me out on the moors for a walk up to Top Withens back in early May. The experience was awe inspiring, and Johnnie's minute knowledge of the Bronte family made the trip so memorable. Booking the walk was very easy. I simply emailed... More

We were lucky enough to arrive at Haworth just before an 11:30 tour set off. To be honest, I wasn't as enthusiastic as the other members of my party to go on this tour initially as I usually have the concentration span of a goldfish with ADHD. Well - how wrong was I. Johnnie is incredibly charismatic and pitched the... More

On the rainy afternoon of Yorkshire Day, the 1st August we met with Johnnie on the church steps for our Bronte talk. As it was seen to be too wet to have the guided walk, we sat in the upstairs room of the excellent Informaion Office. Here there were Yorkshire food 'goodies' to sample.....very nice too! Whilst the rain had... More

On our visit were lucky in 3 ways. First, the sun was shinning; a beautiful day. Second, we were the only people booked on the walk, and lastly we had chosen to take this brilliant walking tour. The guide Johnny is first class. He is interesting, passionate and engaging which makes this the best walking tour I have been on.... More

we had a wonderful time in Haworth. John met us off the train helped park the coach and took us for a wonderful three course lunch. Home cooked and delicious. Too cheap however. The two history tours were excellent. Thank you both John and Steve.

We started this tour as interested and finished as fans thanks to Johnnie's passion for his subject. We learned so much about this family purely because of the way Johnnie delivered the information. He involved each of us in the conversation, drawing out our feelings about the individual members of this remarkable family. We were touched to the point of... More

My mother, sister, and I spent 10 days in England, several of them in London, and several in Haworth. My mother asked what the best part of all of it was, out of the Tower of London, Westminster, the museums, the theatres, etc, and my response was simply 'Johnnie.' I have been a huge Bronte fan for almost my entire... More

We booked the walking tour at the tourist information office costing £5.00 each and met the tour guide johnnie by the church. He was immediately very friendly and chatty and continued to be throughout the tour. The tour lasted about an hour and a half and johnnie gave details of the history of the village as well as the lives... More

My daughter and I were booked on this walk with Johnnie on thurs 26 Feb 2015 On arriving in Haworth that morning our knowledge of the family was limited and confined within the boundaries of much of the population. After almost 2 hours with Johnnie we feel as tho we have walked beside the Brontes through many of their trials... More

We decided to spend a day on a Bronte walk as our daughter is a huge fan of the Bronte sisters and this company did not disappoint. Johnnie Briggs was an awesome guide, with an encyclopedic knowledge of the Brontes and the history of the area. We were staying in York and Johnnie arranged to meet us there for the... More
