The 'World of James Herriot' attraction is in Thirsk and the new flagship North York Moors visitor centre at Sutton Bank is just 6 miles to the east.

Thirsk is only a 10 minute drive from the A1(M), and easily accessed via the A61. To reach St. James House from all directions, first follow directions to Thirsk town centre, and from the Market Place follow the signs for Teesside and Scarborough onto the one-way system. After 100 metres, the road crosses Codbeck and shortly afterwards turns sharply left. At this point turn off towards the Lord Nelson pub, directly ahead and follow the gravelled track to the left, past the Methodist Church and 30 meters further to St James House.
