Welcome to Thirsk

Thirsk is a traditional and vibrant market town in the heart of rural North Yorkshire. Its large, cobbled marketplace is surrounded by independent retailers offering a wide range of high-quality products. It is also home to a twice weekly market held every Monday and Saturday, and hosts the award-winning Northern Dales Farmers Market on the first Sunday of every month.

Thirsk boasts a rich heritage which is well worth exploring. Famous for its close association with James Herriot and for being the birthplace of Thomas Lord, founder of Lord’s Cricket Ground in 1755, Thirsk also has a growing reputation for the fantastic colourful creations of the ‘Yarn Bombers’, whose work frequently adorns the market square. Popular as a visitor destination, the town benefits from the nationally recognised World of James Herriot museum, an award-winning Tourist Information Centre, the popular Thirsk Racecourse and the independent Ritz cinema.
