THE tourism season is now well and truly underway across the Yorkshire Dales and visitors to thirteen Herriot Country attractions are being invited to take advantage of an annual promotion this summer.
Members of the Herriot Country Attractions Group have joined forces for a three month long 'Passport' scheme.
The 'Passport' entitles visitors to two for one admission at the 13 popular destinations until the end of July.
"This is a great way of seeing some of our attractions at discounted prices," said Hambleton's Tourism Manager, David Shields.
The following attractions are included in the scheme:
The gardens of Thorpe Perrow

- Aerial Extreme
- Big Sheep and Little Cow Farm
- Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum
- Falconry UK
- Kiplin Hall
- Mount Grace Priory
- Mouseman Visitor Centre
- Shandy Hall
- Sutton Park
- The World of James Herriot
- Thirsk Museum
- Thorpe Perrow Arboretum
- Wensleydale Railway
'Passports' are first issued by one of the attractions when visitors pay full priced admission. After that they are stamped on each visit and the discount applies.
"This is the fourth year we have tried this scheme - we have linked up with JORVIK in York, Castle Howard at Malton and Newby Hall near Ripon in the past and those schemes have been a huge success," continued David.
"We hope that by going it alone with only Herriot Country attractions will prove just as attractive.
"And with the backing of the local accommodation providers who will be promoting it to their guests we hope it will be an even bigger success this year."
