It is many years since we last visited Helmsley Castle, and it was good to see it again looking in great condition. The exhibitions in the main hall were very interesting and accessible to all ages. Lovely views from the castle mound and from the...More

Helmsley Castle, managed by English Heritage, is set in a lovely position above the market town. Originally started in the 13th century it had undergone many changes. The information boards give lots of information and there is a good exhibition showing life through the ages.
The 500+ year old castle is steeped in history and the site is both enjoyable to walk around and educational. The visitor centre has really good quality items and the town of Helmsley where it is situated is very nice.
This is a fascinating place to visit. The castle ruins were very evocative and you could get a real sense of what it would have looked like.

Yes and No. I had my daughter and a pushchair. There’s a path going around the mound the castles on so you can get up and down easily and there’s enough to see at the top. Once in the ruin you can go in to the old manner house but there are steps, we left our Pushchair outside for this part and it was fine.
