It’s easy to see why our readers are flocking to visit Helmsley in the North York Moors

People visit Helmsley for many reasons; the high standard of restaurants and hotels make it a popular base for visiting the North York Moors.

It has a large selection of independent shops (it won a Great British High Street award in 2016) that attract locals and tourists alike.

One of the most famous landmarks in Helmsley is the Grade II listed Church of All Saints, while the medieval castle with its walled garden, stands proudly over the market town.

For those looking for wildlife shots, The National Centre for Birds of Prey is based in Duncombe Park which also has 450 acres of spectacular gardens and parklands.

Photographers often look to nearby Sutton Bank, Ampleforth and Rievaulx for local detours, but don’t overlook Helmsley, there are plenty of pretty shots take around the town.
