The Wayfarers_Bronte Trail_sm.jpgWander through the towns, villages, and heather-filled moors that inspired the Brontë sisters to pen their 19th-century masterpieces. The Wayfarers’ seven-day walking tour along England’s Brontë Trail begins in Haworth, home of Charlotte, Emily, and Anne, and ends in Chatsworth in the heart of the Peak District. You will visit North Lees Hall, the private manor that inspired Charlotte Brontë to write ‘‘Jane Eyre,’’ take a private guided tour of Haddon Hall, the 12th-century medieval manor house that was cast as Thornfield Hall in the new ‘‘Jane Eyre’’ film, and discuss the novel and film with local specialists. Rates: $3,595 per person for the June 19-25 and August 21-27 trips; includes all lodging, meals, guides, entrance fees, van transport for luggage and tired walkers, and some taxes and gratuities.
