Events at the Brontë Parsonage Museum
This year the Brontë Parsonage Museum is celebrating the bicentenary of Emily Brontë, arguably the most famous of all the Brontës. With a range of special exhibitions and events to mark the occasion there’s plenty to see and do.
It is worth noting that the museum closes throughout January every year, with the exception of New Year’s Day, when it is open. Special walks and tours are sometimes put on during the month but we recommend checking their website.
Read more about their events on the Parsonage website.
Events at the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway
The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway first opened in 1867, making it over 150 years old. Although just 5 miles long, the railway is considered one of the country’s premier ‘heritage’ railways, showcasing the history of British rail.
Alight at one of the stations along the beautiful route from Oxenhope to Keighley and you’ll feel like you have stepped back in time. A ride on a steam train is a great way to take in the stunningly beautiful scenery that is the Worth Valley.
