Step Inside... The World of James Herriot
You’ve probably read the books written by James Alfred Wight 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 relaxed. See his home and surgery in Thirsk; travel back in time to what life was like when James was a vet in Yorkshire. 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, and don’t forget the chickens!
Disabled Access with the exception of the Air Raid Shelter.
