Welcome to Herriot country. As well as being a traditional Yorkshire market town, Thirsk was also the home of renowned vet, James Herriot. Boasting the spectacular backdrops of the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors, it's no wonder this much-loved author was so inspired living and working here.

World of James Herriot Based in his original surgery, this interactive museum is a fascinating insight into the life of James Herriot.

Timeless Yorkshire tradition

Once referred to as 'God's Country', Thirsk is a truly stunning part of the world. The epitome of a rural market town, its medieval cobbled market square, original frontage shops and historic coaching inns have an enduring charm that still enchant visitors today. It's as timeless as the good old Yorkshire welcome that's waiting to greet you.

Up hill and down dale

With the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors on its front and back doorsteps, Thirsk nestles in between some truly extraordinary countryside. Rolling hills run into spectacular limestone valleys, where historic castles and ancient abbeys whisper secrets about times gone by. So put your best foot forward from your cottage, tent or B&B and get ready to start exploring.

The footsteps of the great

As the birthplace of Thomas Lord, founder of Lord's Cricket Ground, and spiritual home of author James Herriot, Thirsk is a Yorkshire legend. Today, the World of James Herriot is an award winning museum and visitor centre which attracts lovers of BBC's All Creatures Great and Small from all around the world. Quite an achievement for a small market town in the Vale of York.
