Leaving York we will make our way to the original home of All Creatures Great and Small- the World of James Herriot. Included in the tour, you will see where the world’s most famous vet, James Herriot, lived, worked, and wrote his incredibly successful series of books based on his experiences as a young North Yorkshire vet.
Following your visit, you will take a short break at the Drovers Arms. Shortly after, you will see where James proposed to Helen and where they got married, Darrowby Station and Bus Stop- all from the original series.
The next stop is Hawes where we will visit multiple locations from the original TV series including Darrowby Church, Darrowby Cattle Market, Darrowby Country Club, and Skeldale House. You will also get to see the veterinary practice in which the character James Herriot worked.
Featuring in many episodes of the newest series, your lunch stop is at Hardraw, the pub that has been used as the interior of The Drovers Arms.
After lunch, we will head to a remote village that has been doubled as the fictional village, Darrowby. Central to the latest version of James Herriots’ screen adaptations, you can grab some refreshments before exploring this quaint village. Additionally, your driver guide will lead a short walking tour that uncovers sites famously known from All Creatures Great and Small- the exterior of the Drovers Arms, G F Endleby, Grocers, Handleys Booksellers, Darrowby Cycle Shop, Darrowby Hardwares, Skeldale House and J. A. Dean, Drapers and Hosiery.
