History Museum
“If you've read the books written by James Alfred Wight or watched 'All Creatures Great and Small' on TV, you'll love this award-winning attraction. See where James Herriot, the world's most famous vet, lived, worked and relaxed. See his home and surgery; travel back in time to what life was like when James was a vet in Yorkshire. See the car he drove, step into the TV set, try your hand at being a vet and even experience what it was like to hide in a World War 2 air raid shelter.”

Art Gallery
“The Gallery is a leading contemporary fine art gallery that was established in 1988, and it is named after the youngest Bell sister. It has been described as one of ‘Yorkshire’s best kept secrets’, and over the years it has earned the reputation as a place to view and purchase a wide range of works by local, national and international artists. Exhibitions change monthly, representing and promoting an extraordinarily wide range of both established and emerging artists. The works shown include a broad range of media including painting, printmaking and ceramics. It is owned by our family - so we hope you find the time to pop in and take a look. ”

Church
“If you decide to wander through town, do find the time to pop into St. Mary’s Church – the one right in front of you when you open the front door. This beautiful church dates to the 15th century and houses some wonderful stained glass windows. The church wardens often arrange exhibitions and displays to enjoy whilst you are there and keep an eye out for mice by the famous mouse-man Robert Thompson! ”

History Museum
“Thirsk Museum is located a little further into town – in the building where Thomas Lord (who founded Lord’s Cricket Ground) was born. It is well worth a look inside to learn more about Thirsk and the surrounding area. ”
