Midland Hotel

Bradford Literature Festival’s flagship event returns for another foray into the world of the Brontë family. For Brontë fans, this is a truly unmissable event, offering a unique insight into the lives and works of Bradford’s most famous siblings.  

This specially curated tour is led by Brontë enthusiast, Christa Ackroyd, and features a number of highlights. Journey by vintage coach to the Brontës’ childhood home in Thornton village and lunch (included) at Branwell Brontë’s favourite local spot, The Lord Nelson pub.  

During the tour, you’ll be treated to marvellous views of the same moors that called to Heathcliff and Catherine, as well as intriguing historical insights on the family from our knowledgeable guide and host.  

The tour includes admission to the Brontë Parsonage Museum, located in the house where the sisters penned their beloved novels, and an exclusive talk by the museum’s knowledgeable staff. 

Although this is a bus tour, some outdoor walking is involved. Attendees are encouraged to wear comfortable footwear and weather-appropriate clothing. 

The tour will depart from outside The Midland Hotel, Bradford. Please meet the group there.

Due to the nature of this event, no discounts or concessions apply.
