Attraction Information

Who doesn’t love a mystery? Especially one with a medieval castle in the mix! Join the hunt on the Helmsley Mystery Treasure Trail.

On your hunt for the truth, begin by downloading the best tools in the business with your route PDF. It’s easy to follow and is simply stuffed with handy hints and tips which will lead you to clues here, there and everywhere. They’ll be tricky to spot however as are sneakily disguised on statues, monuments and landmarks, so keep those peepers peeled!

What makes Helmsley a standout spot for treasure trailing is its medieval history. Evidence of the past is peppered throughout the cobbled streets on buildings and of course all over the towering castle. The route will take around 2 hours so you should have plenty of time to explore and stop for a few rounds of jousting in the medieval  grounds.
