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.

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.
