Area Overview

Helmsley is a historic and pretty town in the district of Ryedale, North Yorkshire. The centre of the town is a conservation area, with approximately 50 listed buildings attracting tourists all year round. Attractive architecture, appealing cafes and a range of independent shops make the town popular with visitors, who also come to see Helmsley Castle remains and Rievaulx Abbey and Terrace, which lie nearby. Average summer temperatures hover around 18°C in this part of Yorkshire, with winter averages being 1°C. The North York Moors National Park brings walkers to the town in summer and winter, but July and August are the peak months for visitors.

Things To Do in Helmsley

  • Helmsley Walled Garden: Originally developed in 1756, this historic garden covers five acres and incorporates glass houses and a working kitchen garden.
  • Nunnington Hall: A lovely old manor house with gardens, owned by the National Trust, and housing a fascinating collection of dolls’ houses. A lovely walled tea garden by the river is home to several peacocks.
  • Rievaulx Terrace: Also owned by the National Trust, Rievaulx Terrace is a lovely place for a walk and a picnic, providing expansive views of the surrounding countryside and down to Rievaulx Abbey (not part of the Terrace).
