This castle is quite difficult to get to up a side turning you have really got to look for it. Nice walk around it and awesomely large.

Helmsley is a village well worth a visit on its own account, and with the added bonus of having this imposing castle overlooking the village, it is a must do and see.

The castle itself is still impressive and has excellent information boards with their artist's impressions of how it would have looked.
You get a real feel for why the castle was built where it was to dominate the villagers and send out that signal of omnipotence and impregnability.

A good place to wander when in Helmsley, very interesting but it doesn't take long to get all around it.

Like allot of english heritage properties you need a pleasant day as a great deal of the visit is out ij the open, but thsi is well worth it as there is alot to see. Close to the town
