To find your way around ‘the quaint market town of Thirsk’ you need our free guide. The map clearly shows the paths, snickets and ginnels which permeate the town. It will help you find children’s play areas and show you how to escape the built up area on foot in just a few minutes. Wheelchair and pushchair walkers can see how to explore within the town.
The guide also shows contact details for places where visitors might want to go to such as activities for children, markets, abbeys, historic houses, gardens, birds of prey, heritage railways, cinemas, theatres, concerts and fishing.
