Private All Creatures Great & Small Tour

Experience hosted by Mark

  1. 8 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

I will pick your group up from your accommodation in York at 9.00am and take you for a private guided tour of the magnificent Yorkshire Dales National Park, but with a particular focus on the scenic filming locations used for the new "All Creatures Great and Small" TV series, first aired in 2020. In the morning we will visit Barden, Burnsall, Malham and Hawkswick, before a lunchtime stop in Grassington, the main filming location for "Darrowby". Then, in the afternoon, I will take you to Thirsk for an opportunity to visit the award-winning World of James Herriot attraction to see where Alf White (the real James Herriot) lived, worked and wrote his series of books, based upon his experiences as a young Yorkshire Vet. However, if you would prefer to continue exploring more of the Yorkshire Dales, we can do that instead of heading to Thirsk. I will provide live commentary throughout the day, telling you about the history and culture of the area as well as the filming locations, then return you to the pickup point in York for around 5.15pm to say our goodbyes.

  • Identity verified
I was actually born in Bristol but moved to Yorkshire in 2006 and have spent the last 7 years hosting guided tours of Yorkshire full-time. I love welcoming new people from the length and breadth of the UK and all corners of the world on my tours to show off our beautiful National Park scenery and share my local knowledge with them. I am passionate about the countryside and go out hiking in all my spare time, with one eye on seeking out new hidden gems to show my future guests. I am very friendly and approachable and professionally qualified to drive both 8 and 16-seat passenger vehicles.
