Helmsley is an ancient and popular market town on the edge of the North York Moors National Park. It has many attractions including Duncombe Park, Helmsley Castle and a small theatre. Full details of the attractions in the area are available from the town's Tourist Information Centre in the old town hall just opposite the hotel in the Market Place.
The walled gardens, which once provided the Castle and then Duncombe Park with produce, are now a popular visitor attraction.
Helmsley lies on the side of the River Rye and its banks make a popular picnic destination. An attractive small tributary runs behind the market square and is equally popular with the Ducks. Further down the River Rye about five miles away is another stately home Nunnington Hall, a Jacobean manor now cared for by the National Trust and a little further on is Ryedale's greatest stately home Castle Howard a Vanburgh master-piece and one of the greatest houses in the country.
