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.
