The market town of Helmsley, with its flowering window boxes, stone cottages, churchyard, and arched bridges leading across streams, is the perfect place to spend a relaxing afternoon. You can while away a few hours lingering in its tea shops and tiny boutiques or exploring the craggy remains of its Norman castle. Market day is Friday. Nearby are the impressive ruins of Rievaulx Abbey.
