Haworth is a small town in Yorkshire, 2 miles from Keighley, and on the edge of the Pennines.

The steep Main Street is paved with stone setts, and is full of gift shops, galleries and cafes, while the Tourist Information Centre is at the top of the street in the little square.

Haworth is mostly visited for its association with the Bronte family. The Parsonage is where the sisters Ann Bronte, Charlotte Bronte and Emily Bronte lived and wrote their famous novels, and their painter brother Branwell Bronte also lived. Emily died here in 1848 and Charlotte in 1855.

St. Michael's Church, rebuilt in 1880 but with the original tower remaining, is where these two are buried - Ann is at Scarborough.

The Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, with a station at Haworth, is a popular steam railway. It was on this line that "The Railway Children", directed by Lionel Jeffries, was filmed.
