Behind the scenes tours

Director Alan Bentley writes:

There will soon be chances to see behind the scenes at the Brontë Parsonage Museum, by taking advantage of a new 'special tour' scheme.

The first two will take place on 3 May and 24 May, with more dates to be announced shortly.

Get a new view of the story of the Brontë Family! Your guide will try to give you a special insight into the lives of the Brontës, and an understanding of why they still inspire people today.

The tour will culminate in a visit to the Parsonage Library, with a chance to view at close quarters a selection of items from the Brontë Society’s collections

Tours are restricted to a maximum of twelve people.

9.45 - meet your guide for a short introduction to the house and the surrounding features

10.00 - tour of the house with your guide

11.15 - visit to the Library and opportunity to view selected items from the collection.

11.45 - end of tour and your opportunity to go back to view the house at your leisure or visit the exhibition in the Old School Room opposite the Museum.

All this is being offered for the special introductory price of £12.95 per head. Unfortunately we are not able to offer reductions for children or concessions. There will be a minimum number on each tour of six people.

Pre-booking is essential. Call 01535 642323 to do it!
