Owner description: The Bronte Parsonage Museum was the home of the world's most famous literary family and the place where the great, romantic novels 'Jane Eyre' and 'Wuthering Heights' were written. 2016 marks the bicentenary of the birth of Charlotte Bronte and an ideal time to visit her former home. The house still evokes the atmosphere of the Brontes' time, and offers visitors a unique insight into their day-to-day lives and varied interests. The Rooms the Brontes used are largely unchanged and filled with a world-class collection of furniture, clothes and personal possessions, as well as a range of domestic artefacts used by the family. Whether you are a fan of the Brontes' writing or simply intrigued by remarkable people and their stories, you will find visiting the Parsonage an absorbing and unforgettable experience.

The house has been restored to how it would have been in Bronte time. The free guide books are informative as are the descriptions with each item.

Its clear a lot of effort has been into each display and these gave a real insight.

The admission price is more than resonable for an interesting and informative experience.

We drove 5 hours to visit here and it was well worth it! £7.00 entrance fee and you could wander round in your own time. There was information boards in each room. So many lovely things to look at and learn about the Bronte's. A truly wonderful collection of everything Bronte. A nice shop too to buy something to remind you of a great visit.

We enjoyed our visit to the Bronte parsonage. It was interesting and very authentic. The exhibitions, were a surprise, but made the trip much more interesting. The display of Charlotte Brontes personal belongings, especially her dress and wedding bonnet, and numerous first additions engage and excite. We learnt much more about the Brontes as a family and their sad tale.

Real insight into the family and the life style that they had during the 19th century. It was quiet the day we attended so no queues

I loved the Bronte house (The Parsonage) when I visited there were queues at the door so if it's raining take your brolley. Inside the Parsonage is amazing it's well worth the wait. It is a museum where time has stood still the rooms are filled with artifacts from the Bronte sisters and for anyone who has read their books will see where they got their inspiration from due to the surrounding area of Howarth, It's great place to visit in the Spring when the flowers are starting to bloom. The old church is a must see and the cobbled streets are a blast from the past (high heels aren't the best footwear for this place I wouldn't imagine!) There's also the railway to look at, when the steam train comes in and out of the station it's a wonderful sight. Only one slight down side Howarth village is built on a hill side so there are some cobbled slopes to contend with for people who have walking difficulties.
