Things to Do

Harrogate, Ripon and York
The elegant spa town of Harrogate, Ripon with its magnificent medieval cathedral and the historic City of York are easily reached from the Crown Hotel. You’ll find exclusive and independent shops in all of these interesting places and for ‘culture vultures’ there are museums, art galleries, sights of historic interest and on our own doorstep Boroughbridge’s prehistoric Red Arrows and only a mile away, the ancient Roman settlement of Aldborough.

World of James Herriot
A short drive to the Market Town of Thirsk takes you to the World of James Herriot that is the original home and veterinary surgery of the world’s most famous vet, Alf Wight OBE, aka James Herriot. The attraction tells the story of the vet who became a multi-million selling author with his stories of life in practice in rural North Yorkshire in the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s. It houses many artefacts of veterinary life from a time gone by, has the largest collection of

Herriot memorabilia in the world, plus, props from two movies and the most popular BBC TV series ever shown ‘All Creatures Great and Small”.  Many vets of today joined the profession after reading and watching the Herriot stories and Interest has now sparked to a new generation with the channel 5 TV series the Yorkshire Vet that is based on the modern day Skeldale Surgery made famous by James Herriot.

Wensleydale Railway
Wensleydale Railway is one of the longest heritage railways in the country that has some of the finest views. Travelling through the Yorkshire Dales from Leeming Bar to Redmire, the Herriot Country Line allows you to see the beautiful countryside of Herriot Country in all its glory and takes you to interesting and attractive rural market towns such as Bedale and Leyburn.

World Heritage
World Heritage status of Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal is well deserved and it is a beautiful place to experience. These monastic ruins and landscaped gardens are only 10 miles from Boroughbridge and make for a lovely day out. Nearby, Nidderdale is an Area of Outstanding Natural beauty.
