About Us
Visit the “World of James Herriot” Like millions worldwide, you’ve probably read his books or watched All Creatures Great and Small on TV. Now come and see where James Herriot, the world’s most famous vet, lived, worked and wrote his incredibly successful series of books based on his experiences as a young North Yorkshire vet. Walk through his fully-restored 1940s home and surgery in Thirsk; travel back in time to what life was like when James was practicing. See the car he drove, step into the TV set, try your hand at being a vet and even experience what it was like to hide in a World War 2 air raid shelter. Set in the heart of stunning Herriot Country, World of James Herriot is a multi award-winning, all-weather attraction. We are open seven days a week offering visitors of all ages so much to see and do.
