HIGHLIGHTS

  • Visit Grassington, used as the village of 'Darrowby' in the series, where James Herriot starts his new life - many local shops were transformed for the series; the local bakery and chocolatier became 'Darrowby Cycles', the girft shop transformed into 'Higgins Bakers', the local bookshop stood in for the greengrocers
  • Enjoy some refreshments in the coffee shop that was used by the cast and crew on their breaks. 
  • Photo opportunities outside the pub which was used for exterior shots of 'The Drover's Arms'
  • Visit the historic Broughton Hall, which was used in several scenes for Mrs Pumphrey's House. 
  • Jump off the coach and have a photo stop at Malham Lings, the spot where James Herriot prematurely gets off the bus for his trip to Darrowby - rolling countryside and in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales. 
  • Include a visit to the James Herriot museum; the fully restored site of James Herriot's original home and veterinary practise (known in the books as Skeldale House) - the original TV series was also filmed here.
