Bronte Country Tour

Bronte country is an area which straddles the West Yorkshire and East Lancashire pennines in the north of England.

A windswept land of heather and wild moors, it is hardly surprising that this region became the inspiration for the classic works of the three famous Bronte sisters, Charlotte, Emily and Anne.
