Amazing grounds and castle - there are actually some rooms still in use for functions etc. We visited on a pageant day. Very interesting.

This is a place you can visit on foot while staying in Helmsley as it is right in the centre. There's plenty of ample parking and the site is quite large. There are plenty of local cafe's to pop in for a refreshemnt later. It's English Hertiage and the charge isn't too steep. It is right next to the Walled Garden which you can look down to when in the Castle ground.

I visited Helmsley Castle with wife and family in the mid-1990's. There aren't the facilities neighbouring Rievaulx enjoys but the site is nevertheless large and gives a good idea of the size of the original Norman castle and its later additions

English Heritage. Very well presented. Audio guide was excellent. Interior displays as well as the castle itself. Well kept grounds and friendly staff.

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.
