Book it to England

By 1800FlyEurope in Destination Highlights | on June 17th, 2011

I am a bookworm. I admit it: I would rather spend my evenings on the couch with a good novel and my dog, Daisy, than almost anything else. Two of my favorite books in the classics genre are Wuthering Heights by Emily Brontë and Jane Eyre written by Emily’s sister, Charlotte. Their other sister, Anne, was also an author who penned Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall (I haven’t read either, but, but I’ll get around to them someday).

I am also a bit of a history buff with a love for old houses and antiques as well as books. This is why I was thrilled to learn about the Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth, England. The museum, run by the Brontë Society, was once the family home. Almost all of the Brontës belongings and memorabilia are still here and the home has been beautifully maintained in its original decor. You may visit the study of their clergyman father, Patrick, as well as his bedroom, the children’s study, the servant quarters, Charlotte’s bedroom and brother Branwell’s art studio.

The museum is located in the heart of Yorkshire county and costs very little to enter. If you love books and historical homes as much as I do, you must visit the Brontë Parsonage Museum during your next trip to the United Kingdom. Pick up a cheap rental car at the Manchester Airport and head to Haworth, which is about an hours drive north through the beautiful English countryside.
