A 16th century house with lots to see and experience. Good for all ages but you'd need to be able to climb stairs to see all of it. Great for kids who can dress up in period clothes (supplied) but very interesting for big people...More

Oakwell Hall is interesting for Bronte fans. It's set in a great parkland which is good for dog walking, and very popular with families. As such it was a little busy for us, but we'd still go back one day.
