All Creatures Great & Small

The King’s Arms in Askrigg was made famous by the iconic and much loved television series, All Creatures Great and Small. The pub featured in the series as The Drovers, the often frequented local of James Herriott and the vets of Skeldale House.

The pub sits in the heart of the village, which is home to many other recognisable locations used during the filming, including Skeldale House. A walk down Main Street in Askrigg is sure to bring the memories of Sunday evening TV flooding back.

Inside The King’s Arms, take a look at our fascinating photographs, taken during the filming of the All Creatures Great and Small series. They make the pub a must-visit place to finish off any visit to the village by fans of James Herriott.
