England Things to Do: 566 reviews and 886 photos
I have loved all of James Herriot's books about his life as a country vet in this part of England. Our tour took us into the small town of Thirsk where he had his surgery. We saw his house and office, the shops where he shopped, and the Darrowby Inn where he used to go for drinks. The James Herriot books all started when a man asked him to write 3 articles for the Sunday paper. They were so popular, he wrote the books. He actually came to the pub with his books and would sell them there. He died several years ago. It was so neat to see the town where all of the things in the books took place.
