Last weekend Rob and I drove north to Haworth – a small Yorkshire town, famous for being the home of the Bronte sisters. We’re slowly making our way around northern hot spots that we really should’ve visited years ago, and Haworth has been on the list for a while. As soon as we arrived, I fell in love.
After wandering up and down the main street, popping into the pub for a pint (red wine for me) and admiring the many, many dogs out for a stroll, we headed to the Brontë Parsonage Museum. The Brontë family home has been lovingly restored and is open to the public – you can peer into the lives of Emily, Charlotte and the rest of their family, see where they wrote their famous novels and learn more about the things that inspired them. It was truly fascinating and quite moving to think such important literary works were written right here in Yorkshire.
We left Haworth just as the sun began to set. As we drove towards home, we spotted this amazing view and stopped to take some photos… which somehow turned into an outfit shoot. The life and times of a fashion blogger!
We had such an amazing day in Haworth – it’s now officially top of my ‘Places To Move When I Retire’ list. I can just imagine opening a shop selling vintage finds and local produce, maybe with a little café area and tables outside during the summer. BRB, going to daydream about being 65 for a while…
