The World of James Herriot, Thirsk

Image gallery

Visit the home and veterinary surgery of Alf Wight, the "real" James Herriot, and go behind the scenes of the hit TV series, "All Creatures Great and Small".

The World of James Herriot is located at 23 Kirkgate in Thirsk, once the home and vetinerary surgery of Alf Wight, author of the James Herriot books. The books were based on Alf’s own experiences as a vet, and a visit to the museum will transport you back in time to the 1940s, allowing you to view a restoration of the author’s home, and taking you behind the scenes and onto the set of the famous TV show, All Creatures Great and Small.
