Ryedale Folk Museum is a large open-air site with historic buildings. Whilst almost all of our site is at ground level access some of our paths are uneven by their nature and there are one or two steps in and out of several buildings. For more information on access including prices for disabled visitors and free wheelchair or mobility scooter hire, please click here.
Ryedale Folk Museum is in the picturesque village of Hutton le Hole in the North York Moors National Park. We are located on the road which runs from Kirkbymoorside over ‘Blakey Ridge’ to the village of Castleton, just two miles north of the main A170 road between Helmsley and Pickering. Postcode for navigation – YO62 6UA It’s less than a one-hour drive from Whitby, York, Scarborough and Middlesbrough and around a one and half hour drive to Leeds and Hull.
The Museum does not have its own car park but there are two close-by. Museum visitors can make use of The Crown Inn car park, which is immediately next door to the Museum. £3 per day – coins only (for those not eating at The Crown Inn). Alternatively, you can park in the North York Moors National Park car park on Moor Lane, a 300m walk from the Museum. The National Park car park is more expensive than the pub car park.
Please find the most up to date information about other bus services to Hutton le Hole, by visiting the Get Down site for bus services to the village and around the area.
Eating and Drinking
We do not have our own café on site (except for on event days when we occasionally run a ‘pop-up’ service). There are a number of excellent choices in the village to get a drink or a meal. They include The Crown Inn, The Forge Tearoom and The Barn Tearooms – all of which are a very short walk from the Museum. Show your Museum pass at The Forge Tearoom or The Barn Tearooms to receive a discount!
