  • A really great castle with significant amounts to see and do. Gift shop, extensive ruins, mini museum. Well worth a visit. Parking next door.
  • Fantastic place to start exploring Helmsley
  • Went on a cold September morning and had the place to ourself. Great to combine with riveaulx Abbey if you have a full day. Really impressive relic that gives a great glimpse of 1500s life. Loved our visit. Better than castle Howard.
  • A great place to explore. The castle and grounds are really only half a days entertainment for younger kids. The grounds are well kept and access is good although it's mostly grass so you need decent footwear if wet. There is only one building which is covered that has a good selection of exhibits and artifacts. The gift shop has some great themed toys for children (and adults!, the toy catapult is a lot of fun) Very reasonable entry price too.
  • Interesting and nice place to spend an afternoon
