About Bronte Walks
Discover Yorkshire with Brontë Walks. We offer tours, guides and so much more to make your visit to Yorkshire a memorable one. I am a Blue Badge Tourist Guide for Yorkshire and my love of the county and in particular Haworth and the moors that surround it is the inspiration for my work. I offer a wide range of guides walks, tours, support for tour companies, meet and greet services, day tours, drive tours and extended tours across the whole of Yorkshire. My job is to help you discover Yorkshire and all that it has to offer. The ‘Passionate Brontës’ is our acclaimed walking tour of Haworth that tells the story of the Brontë family. I use their letters, poems and writing to weave the story into the social fabric of the times. This is offered as either a scheduled walk that all are welcome to join, or as a private tour. It is the most wonderful prelude to visiting the Parsonage Museum. The times for these walks do vary and it is best to check when they are running.

Our first trip in this pandemic period. Very Covid safe. Did the passionate Brontes tour first, which was all the grounding required pre parsonage visit. These places are just buildings, but with a great guide like Johnnie, you get the stories. Particularly valuable was rooting it all in the local history and contextualising the writing. We booked a second day, where Johnnie and I walked for several hours on the moor with our dogs, and my husband did a proper hike with johnnie’s colleague. This suited my short legs just fine! Walking the few hours with him gave me confidence to tackle a few more walks this week. Great start to our trip with lots of local recommendations.

Johnnie was easy to speak with in order to obtain help in planning my trip to Haworth.(provided great directions to walk to Top Withens and past Bronte Waterfalls), was punctual, and spent longer with my mum and I than orignally decided (£30 for 2.5 hours was good value for money). Very knowledgeable and passionate about all things Bronte. We just needed some time to stop and think occasionally and more room to ask questions, as the information flowed out thick and fast! But overall definitely recommended.

Our day tour with Johnnie Briggs through the Moors was incredible. We had not only found Johnnie to be benevolent and amusing, but riveting and captivating as well. Johnnie is an excellent storyteller and is extremely knowledgeable in both literature and general history. This tour served to not only to teach me about the Bronte family history, but to make my school trip to England unforgettable. Even though I had only known Johnnie for a day, by the end of the tour I felt as if I was saying a final goodbye to a longtime friend. I cannot recommend this tour enough. Thank you for making Haworth unforgettable, Johnnie. Sincerely, your friends from Los Angeles, Aidan and Cameron

Hello Aidan and Cameron. I just want to say thank you for your wonderful review. You are very generous in your kind words. It was a delight to host Sierra Canyon School and to share a day with you in Haworth and on the moors. I wish you well with your future studies and I look forward to sharing another walk with you. Go well. Best wishes from Johnnie, Lemony, Keith and Maggie

We spent the morning with Johnnie Briggs walking around Haworth, and then we spent all afternoon walking with him on the moors. Fabulous story teller, and lots of information not available in the many referneces we had read before going to Haworth. We are now retired and do lots of traveling, and this day with Johnnie was by far my favorite. Thanks so much.

Johnnie Briggs was the perfect guide for my long-awaited Bronte Pilgrimage. He is so very knowledgeable about the area as a whole, current and past that our tour felt like a travel through time. He painted the Bronte story in a more positive light than the popular “isolated and dark” portrayal. Johnnie is a wonderful storyteller. Already planning another visit to catch the things we didn’t have time for this trip. Highly recommended!
