Helmsley – Away with Maja’s fantastic blog post

We love Helmsley, a quaint northern market town which we have consistently visited on our tours since Grand Yorkshire was launched.

We have our own guide to Helmsley here, but we think you should check out Maja’s blog about her visit to Helmsley and Rievaulx Abbey:

“Today, Rievaulx Abbey is run by English Heritage. There is a small museum, with lots of great stonework from the abbey prior to its dissolution. But by far, the best part of visiting the abbey is getting to explore the ruins. You can still visit the central church and walk down the nave, see the dining hall, and climb over the walls of various other buildings and rooms. I felt like a kid in a candy store getting to run around the ruins!”

There is some great advice, super photos and plenty of information about the town and the abbey:

“Helmsley is just about as picturesque and quaint as they come. The small market town is generally busy with shoppers, and motorcyclists who meet on weekends after driving through the North Yorkshire Moors.”
