Guided Tours of Church

We are pleased to announce that we are now offering guided tours of Haworth Parish Church.

Currently we are operating on specific days and we will publish those dates both on the notice board within Church and on this page of our web site.

The tours last about 40 minutes and will be lead by one of our specially trained tour guides.

There will be no charge for the tour but we would be delighted if you were able to offer a donation towards either the running of the Church or its restoration if you enjoy the tour.

We believe that the tours are family-friendly but we regret that, at the moment, we are only able to offer them in one language – English.

Ours is a Victorian building and has some uneven floors and steps. But it is for the most part accessible to everybody. Also we should warn anybody wearing high heels that there are gratings in the floor so great care should be exercised.

The tours start adjacent to the north-facing door (that’s the glass one with an engraved cross) starting at 12.00pm, 1.00pm and 2.00pm.

Each of our guides offers an individual view of our lovely church but you can expect to hear about the journey the church has made from medieval times through the English Civil War, Victorian England and the recent restoration programme; then there’s some of the leading personalities such as Rev. William Grimshaw, a giant of early Methodism, and Rev. Patrick Bronte, our longest serving priest and father of the world-famous literary sisters: Charlotte, Emily and Anne.

There’s far more on offer and we believe the tour will give you a wonderful insight into the Church, its people and its history.

If you require a party booking, or indeed would like to secure a private tour, we can in most circumstances satisfy that requirement. Should that interest you please contact John Huxley on 07775 762890 or via email: johnthehux@gmail.com for more details and appointments.

Between now and Easter we will be offering tours on most Wednesdays and Saturdays and in the run up to Easter tours are planned for the following Wednesdays: March 1st, March 8th, March 22nd, March 29th, April 5th, April 12th and April 17th. Also tours are planned for the following Saturdays: March 11th, March 18th, March 25th, April 1st, April 15th and April 22nd.

Please note the tours planned for Wednesday March 15th have been cancelled as there is likely to be a funeral staged in Church at 1.00pm.
