Helmsley Castle

Explore Helmsley

If you were asked to imagine the perfect English market town, then it’d probably look a lot like Helmsley! There’s the bustling market square, the dramatic castle ruins, the charming tea rooms, the inviting inns; all surrounded by mile after mile of the beautiful North York Moors. Indeed, the Cleveland Way and Ebor Way both begin from here. It’s no wonder that Helmsley welcomes back so many visitors year after year.

Only a mile across, historical Helmsley has lots to keep the visitor entranced for a day’s visit or more. There are cosy pubs, fine dining restaurants with Michelin starred chefs and plenty of boutiques, book and speciality shops overlooking the square and its ancient cross… be sure to haggle a bargain there at the Friday market! If it’s summer, you might even find time for a dip in the town’s delightful open air swimming pool!
