PLB : Helmsley Castle, North Yorkshire- Creative design and consultancy for cultural and natural heritage

Helmsley Castle, North Yorkshire
For English Heritage

The Brief:

  • Provide a more rewarding visitor experience through improved intellectual and physical access around the site
  • Improve the relevance and appeal of the interpretation at the Castle to as many new and existing audiences as possible
  • Reverse the decline in visitor numbers and re-establish Helmsley Castle’s position in the English Heritage portfolio

Our Solutions:

  • Engaging and informative displays in the new entrance building which also houses the Tourist Information Office, tempting general visitors to learn more about the Castle and pay to visit
  • New indoor displays, with interactives and models, easily accessible visitor trail with audio tour to guide visitors around the buildings and medieval earthworks
  • Wide ranging appeal, especially for family and school visits, has transformed an underperforming ‘gem’ into a flagship regional attraction.

English Heritage commended the PLB team for providing

“ a stimulating solution to the design brief”
