The World of James Herriot is a perfect place to visit in North Yorkshire and will take your guests on a nostalgic journey through the former home and veterinary surgery where the world’s most famous vet lived, practised and wrote his best-selling books. All Creatures Great and Small went on to become a hit TV series and films that are still shown around the world.

The award-winning attraction houses the largest collection of Herriot memorabilia in the world and is a ‘must see’ visitor attraction that is the heart of Herriot Country in North Yorkshire.


What group organisers say

Just a note to say a big thank you for the very warm welcome you gave myself and the group yesterday. The exhibition was excellent, and, without exception everyone enjoyed it. The flexibility of being able to come in our own time was ideal. Thank you also for the driver incentive. All in all, it was a great visit and day out for us.” Paul Brook. Morecambe Social Group
