Area Information

Helmsley
Famous for its character and charm, the historic market town of Helmsley is situated on the edge of the North York Moors National Park and the Valley of Pickering. It has retained its medieval layout and the Market Place is surrounded by some interesting period stone-built cottages and many charming traditional shops and tearooms. In the middle of the Market Place there is a statue of William Duncombe, 2nd Baron Feversham, whose family has been associated with Helmsley since 17th century. Helmsley with the nearby area offers a fabulous choice of places to visit, such as ruins of the Helmsley Castle built in 1120, Duncombe Park - the beautiful dwelling of the Barons of Feversham, the International Centre for Birds of Prey, Helmsley Walled Garden, Rievaulx Abbey, Nunnington Hall and the Sutton Bank. The 110 miles long Cleveland Way National Trail starts in Helmsley. The beautiful towns of York, Thirsk and Pickering are an easy drive away.
