The former home of the Brontë family, this recently refurbished Georgian parsonage is a museum to Britain's greatest literary family.

The Brontë sisters spent most of their lives at the parsonage, and it was there that they wrote their most famous novels. The museum, which is maintained by the Brontë Society, is packed with family memorabilia, original furniture and artefacts from the sisters' lives.


Permanent collection

The house contains period rooms decorated with original furnishings, displaying the family's personal relics, paintings, books and manuscripts. The Brontë Parsonage Museum Library is host to a huge number of books and articles relating to the family, as well as original documents and materials. The library is open only by appointment.

The Brontë Parsonage Museum is a historic, intimate space and for the safety and wellbeing of our staff, volunteers and visitors, and to ensure we can offer the best visitor experience, we will continue to monitor visitor numbers in order to avoid over-crowding. This means that at very busy times visitors may need to queue for a short while.

Tickets will be released in tranches as we monitor the ongoing situation.

Whilst face coverings are no longer mandatory, some of our staff and volunteers continue to use them and our visitors are welcome to do the same if they wish. .

Please maintain a respectful distance (1m+) from our staff and volunteers and any visitors who are not part of your household
