HAWORTH’S Bronte Parsonage Museum is included in a list of the UK’s top 500 “unmissable experiences and hidden gems”.

The parsonage, once home to the legendary literary siblings, is placed 219th in the table – compiled by travel publication Lonely Planet.

The museum is among 37 Yorkshire visitor attractions and landmarks included.

Top county destination is the Yorkshire Dales National Park, at number 18.

Peter Dodd, commercial director of tourism and marketing body Welcome to Yorkshire, said: “It’s fantastic that so many Yorkshire locations have been showcased in Lonely Planet’s Travelist.

“There’s so much on offer across all four corners of the county – the magnificent coastline, majestic heritage, vibrant cities and stunning countryside.”

He added that he was delighted to see the Tour de Yorkshire also feature on the list – at 252.

The route of the cycle race, in May, included the Worth Valley and South Craven.

“We organise the annual race to showcase the very best that Yorkshire has to offer – from the luscious landscapes to the passionate people,” said Mr Dodd.

“This year nearly two million spectators lined the route, including many visiting from elsewhere in the UK and overseas.”

Top of the list UK-wide is the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. For more details, visit lonelyplanet.com/news/2019/08/13/lonely-planet-uk-best-experiences.
