The Black Swan has been providing travellers with a warm welcome and famous hospitality for centuries.

This iconic site dates back to the 15th century. With an Elizabethan building on one end, a Tudor one to the other and a Georgian House in the middle, The Black Swan is wonderfully higgledly-piggledy, with bags of character. Having recently undergone an exciting refurbishment, this inn offers bags of history and character alongside a modern twist.

With its inviting open fires and warm welcome, The Black Swan is just the place to eat, drink, sleep and explore beautiful Helmsley from and attractions including nearby Rievaulx Abbey, Helmsley Castle and Helmsley Walled Garden.
