  • If you like history and castles you will love this one. Interesting and quite big. Set in a picturesque town with nice caf├ęs and shopping. As the car park is at the castle it is definitely worth a day out. 6.50 for parking all day which is fair.
  • Not much of Helmsley castle left, just the ruins but the walled garden adjacent is a nice little place to visit , as is Helmsley itself , great little shops and pubs and cafes. Pay and display parking only and it gets very busy . Helmsley is a delight and a hidden gem .
  • Lots to see both inside and out, lovely walking round the grounds & a very nice shop & information area. Helmsley village itself is also lovely with excellent shops & eating places.
  • Well worth a visit for the massive defensive earth works, the Tudor rooms and spectacular views. An excellent English Heritage interpretation.
  • Great example of a castle. Good areas of restorative work. Fantastic displays
