Trains to Thirsk

First opened in 1841, Thirsk is a charming small station in North Yorkshire, with fine views of the surrounding countryside from its open-air platforms. Originally known as Newcastle Junction, it actually lies 1.5 miles from the town centre, on the outskirts of a small village called Carlton Miniott. Thirsk itself is a traditional market town that is ideal for exploring the North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales. Casual walkers can enjoy short walks from the town and along the river, and there are more challenging treks around the Hambleton Hills and the paths off The Drove Road. The town centre may be a short bus ride away but it's worth the trip, with a busy cobbled market square surrounded by quaint independent shops. The town also has two famous sons: vet and author of James Herriot was born here, and Thomas Lord, after whom Lord's Cricket Ground is named, was also a child of the town.
