Helmsley Certificated Locations

The market town of Helmsley is situated in the English county of North Yorkshire, in the Ryedale district thanks to its position on the River Rye.

It is a compact town that has retained its medieval layout around the market square, making it ideal for exploring and whatever holiday pursuits you had in mind.

You can enjoy walking, shopping, cycling and looking at the historical artefacts, as well as eating at fine restaurants, cosy pubs or award-winning delis.

 Key attractions include the National Centre for Birds of Prey, a brewery with guided tours, Helmsley Arts Centre, Helmsley Castle and the Walled Gardens. If it's warm, there's even the opportunity to swim outdoors in the town's own lido - and if it's wet, you could always try your hand at making walking sticks.

For keen walkers looking to explore the North York Moors National Park, the Cleveland Way and Ebor Way also both begin in Helmsley.
