Thirsk is a busy little market town in North Yorkshire. It has so much to offer its residents and visitors who keep coming back every year.

A market is held in the town centre every Monday and Saturday and sells items from local fruit and veg to hand crafted gifts. Their independent shops, bars and cafes are a great way of meeting the friendly locals and to buy unique items.


The history is at every corner you turn in Thirsk and has great museums from James Herriot which opened in 1999, to Thirsk’s Museum which is free entry and opened in 1975.

They even have their own cinema called the Ritz which is run by volunteers and first opened in 1912.


Plaques and Interpretation boards are placed around the town, and it’s a great trail to discover what the town has to offer.

I also discovered some great walks along the river and the stunning Mill gardens, where Rymer Mill was stood and made flour.

There is still lots more in Thirsk I have yet to discover and talk about and I can’t wait to go back and find out more.
