We went on the Passionate Bronte walk in Howarth today knowing very little about the Bronte sisters and their lives. That soon changed. Our guide was brilliant, very knowledgable about the whole Bronte family, along with the beautiful surrounding area and history around Howarth. He was entertaining, involving the whole audience, and even if you are not a huge fan... More

This really was the best walking tour I have ever been on. A hugely emotional story told in an captivating way. I'm still thinking about the Bronte family several days afterwards - I was engrossed! The tour took about 90 minutes but involved minimal walking (I am quite heavily pregnant and managed just fine) and seemed to be over much... More

I can only agree with other people regarding Johnny Briggs - he brought the tour to life, he managed to keep my teenage son entertained and involved. I suggest you do the tour before visiting the Parsonage, not only do you get £1.00 discount if you show your tour ticket but I feel you can appreciate museum more.

We had a marvellous day in Haworth. The very best part was the inspirational talk and walk given by Johnny Briggs - Bronte Walks. He got everyone involved and was very entertaining, passionate and knowledgeable about his subject.. This tour is a must for anyone visiting Haworth to learn about the Brontes.

I couldn't agree more with the very positive reviews of the tour given by Johnny Briggs (or Johnnie - I'm afraid I don't know which spelling is correct). It was the best guided tour I have ever been on - knowledgeable, impassioned, witty and involving very good rapport with the group. Haworth was the last place I visited on my... More

Having been on far too many dull, dry walking tours with guides who mechanically spout out tedious historical facts, I had little hope for The Passionate Brontes. But Johnnie Briggs swept the carpet from under my feet. Rarely have I met anyone so passionate, so articulate and so utterly compelling. Every minute in his company was pure joy and I... More

So glad I saw this walk on Trip Advisor. We went along with high expectations after reading the reviews. I would say my expectations were exceeded. The guide knows a great deal about the Brontes and their times and has the ability to convey his knowledge in an engaging, moving and entertaining manner. We heard about not just the Brontes... More

We did the Bronte walk on Sunday and have not stopped telling our friends how good it was. The guide Johnnie Briggs was fantastic and we both came away feeling like we knew the Brontes well. I thought I knew a fair bit about the Brontes and I consider myself a fan, but I learnt so much more than I... More
