Helmsley is a beautiful old market town and its market cross serves as the starting point of the Cleveland Way, a 108 mile trek around the North Yorkshire Moors. As such, it has plenty of amenities for the visitor. Shopping is very good in Helmsley and it also has several quality inns and pubs to cater to the visiting walkers.

Helmsley is far more than just a way station - there are several places to visit making it a good place to stay for a few days. Helmsley Castle, built in the 1200s is a great place to start. The ruins of the castle loom over the town. The castle was intact until the Civil War when it was destroyed by the Parliamentarians. The fantastic Baroque home of the Duncombe family is also worth a visit. Duncombe Park offers centuries-old treasures to view, beautiful ornamental gardens and attractions for younger visitors. These two sights are within view from Helmsley Walled Garden but do not detract from the garden itself. This five-acre site, first built in 1756, is a fully functioning kitchen garden.

Helmsley has lovely old pubs, traditional tea houses and wonderful relaxing walks by the river. In short, it is an ideal place for a short break or for a longer getaway.
