Haworth is a place in West Yorkshire in England in the area of the Pennines.
Haworth was home of the Brontë sisters: Charlotte Brontë, Branwell Brontë, Emily Brontë and Anne Brontë. The three sisters had novels and a book of poetry published in the middle of the 19th century under male pseudonyms, while her brother Branwell was mainly active as a painter. Her father, Patrick Brontë (1777-1861) was for over forty years vicar of the local church.
In the old town of Haworth is the former vicarage opposite the church of St. Michael and All Angels, the Brontë Parsonage Museum, a small museum in memory of the Brontë sisters.
In addition, Haworth is a popular holiday resort for hiking tourists. The surrounding of the bottom Moore Yorkshire Dales are suitable for long walks in the open, unspoiled nature.
The surrounding countryside was Emily Brontë as a backdrop for her only novel Wuthering Heights (1848 ). Striking Landscape points as the Penistone Crags, of Penistone Hill and the Feenhöhle on Ponden Kirk can be found in the book again. Top Withins, the highest hill of the area is taken as a model for the geographical location of the estate Wuthering Heights, a corresponding billboard located on the ruins of an old farm house on the hill.
Another tourist attraction is Haworth's historic train station, part of the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an original preserved steam railway which is still in operation today.
