These ladies are a fine example to welcoming visitors to Thirsk and cheerfully dispensing much appreciated local knowledge to the likes of ourselves who are unfamiliar to the area. A grateful "thank-you" form these two Canadians!

Thank you for visiting us and for taking the time to tell us how it went.

Lots of information available and very helpful staff. Worthwhile visiting if it's your first visit to Thirsk. While Tourist Information is on the ground floor, it is a small place with narrow walkways so wheelchair access could be a bit tricky.

We have several regular local wheelchair visitors. If you encounter any difficulty we will be pleased to ensure that you get proper access to all shelves and racks in the information office.

The staff were very helpful in giving out detail of places of interest. All the bollards in the centre of the town had the tops covered with knitted items showing faces, people on bikes, flowers with different emblems.

The staff are always willing to help without being intrusive, and took real trouble to help my son find relevant leaflets when he was looking for local woodworkers. There are a lot of interesting guides, books and gifts in a pleasant setting.
