Planning to visit with 10 or more? Here's what we offer.

Update re Covid-19 restrictions:

The Brontë Parsonage Museum is an intimate, historic property and in order to adhere to Government guidance and protect our staff, volunteers and visitors, we are currently operating an online timed-entry booking system and admitting a maximum of ten visitors every 15 minutes. From 4 May, we will stop timed-entry, but will continue to monitor visitor numbers.

We are delighted that we are now welcoming groups again.  If you would like to visit with a group, please contact us at to discuss how we may be able to accommodate you.  

Planning to visit with 10 visitors or more?  Read on to discover how you can enhance your visit.  

The team at the Museum is able to share the Brontë Society's world-class collection in a number of exciting and interesting ways, including illustrated talks or guided walks with one of our Brontë experts.

We can offer different activities for groups of all kinds.  Whether you are visiting with the WI, a book group, University of the Third Age, a large family party, or a celebration with a group of friends, we can suggest ways for you to enhance your visit. Just email us at to discuss your ideas.

Talks and walks include: 
Introduction to the Brontës: Meet the famous Yorkshire family and learn what inspired them in the surroundings of their own home.

Haworth Brontë Walking Tour: Our resident guide shows your group around the village, revealing what it was like in the Brontës' day, disclosing some of its many secrets.

Brontë Influences: How did the sisters produce such astonishing and unique work? Learn about influences on their writing, and the culture they were steeped in.

To make your group visit memorable, please email us here.


Bringing a group of children or young adults?

We know that not all children's groups are organised by schools. You may wish to bring some Brownies, Guides or Scouts; organise a party for a child fascinated by the Brontës; or bring a group of friends during the school holidays. We can organise Brontë-themed craft workshops, special Museum tours, or stage a Jane Eyre drama workshop, a guided drama based on Jane's school days at Lowood, ideal for children aged 7-12.

Ring Learning Officer Sue Newby for details on 01535 640185, or email her here.

These activities are completely separate from our special groups, activities and seminars for students. For specific educational workshops and activities, please click here.

Guidelines for Groups

Groups are defined as being made up of 10 or more visitors, not including the group leader and coach driver who can enter free of charge.  

Groups over 10 must pre-book, as the Museum’s ground floor is small. Please email here, or phone 01535 640192. The office is staffed Tuesday to Friday.

All groups must be booked in advance at a specific time to qualify for the reduced-price group rate of £10 per person (adults), or £8 per person (65 & over), or £6.50 per person (concessions & students).  The Museum, a listed building, is small and it may not always be possible to accomodate you on your preferred day so early booking is advisable. Please call 01535 640192 to discuss your requirements or email 

Payment must be made in advance 7-10 days before the visit, and can be made either by card, sterling cheque or bank transfer. 

A cancellation fee of 50% (up to a total of £50) will be charged for any booking cancelled less than two days prior to the visit or if the group fail to arrive on the day.

Due to the size of the Museum and in the interests of other visitors, we request that group leaders do not conduct guided tours. Assistants are on hand, however, to answer any questions. Large parties will be staggered into the museum at regular intervals in accordance with our timed entry system. A self-guided tour of the Museum takes between 45-60 minutes. 

Toilets are situated near the exit of the car park adjacent to the Museum.

Disabled access to the Museum is limited depending on the individual's mobility. To discuss specific requirements contact the Museum or visit Access.

Refreshments may be purchased at one of a number of cafés on Main Street.

Our excellent gift shop offers Bronte-themed gifts and souvenirs. Click here to purchase online.
