Helmsley Castle

Surrounded by spectacular banks and ditches, the impressive medieval ruins of Helmsley Castle stand beside the attractive market town of Helmsley.
Helmsley Castle has recently undergone a thorough makeover by English Heritage, making it more accessible to a wide range of visitors. This includes a brand-new visitor centre also providing tourist information, an audio tour, and an imaginative hands-on exhibition in the mansion range.
Displaying a fascinating array of finds from Civil War cannon balls to early tableware, this exhibition explores the social and domestic, as well as the military aspects of the fortress.
