Set your imagination free, breathe the chill moorland air, gaze over the wild, dramatic landscape of Wuthering Heights.

Most excellent tour with the two friendliest and most knowledgeable tour guides. More than just knowledgeable they were experts, academic level insights into the Lake District and the Brontë family, but never stuffy or boring. Can’t recommend highly enough. A fine mix of local lore, literary background, and topography.

What an excellent tour. Jill and Sandra spent the whole day taking us to all the important Brontë spots. They were really knowledgeable and very pleasing. We had plenty of time to get to know them and have our questions answered.This was our second of 3 tours with this company and I would definitely recommend them highly.

The ladies steered and informed me through all the stunning locations through Cumbria, Lancashire,& Yorkshire ,& ultimately in The Bronte’s Parsonage,& surrounds. Great knowledge & insights accompanied every locations,& as the drizzle settled in during our return, the ladies kindly dropped me to my accomodation as they didn’t want to leave me stranded!

I had never visited the Lake District before, and was travelling alone, so I was unsure of who to book a tour with and I'm so happy I went with Gillian and Tim! In our day trip from the Lake District to Yorkshire we stopped at a number of significant landmarks for the Brontes, with plenty of time to enjoy some of the sights your own. As a huge Bronte fan, I learned so much from this trip, and had the most wonderful time. Cannot recommend enough!
