Holiday highlights

The Haworth Parsonage Museum is where the Bronte sisters lived and wrote their famed novels. The sisters (except for Anne) are also interred on the grounds of the museum, which contains a vast collection of their manuscripts.
Harrogate Autumn Flower Show
The biannual Harrogate Flower Shows are run by the North of England Horticultural Society, and are widely regarded as among the most prestigious events in England. 100 of the UK's top plant nurseries attend and showcase their talent to nearly 100,000 visitors yearly. One of the show's great appeals are the number of 'shows within the show' run by specialist gardening groups.
