Discover Richmond Founded by the Normans in 1071, Richmond is a vibrant market town. It’s the Original Richmond, with 56 other Richmonds around the world named after it. Visitors love the impressive castle keep, riverside setting and elegant Georgian architecture. The fast-flowing River Swale meanders around the edge of the town offering lovely riverside walks from the former Station to the waterfall, the ruins of Easby Abbey or through Billy Banks Woods, which climb steeply above the river to Round Howe. It’s no surprise that Richmond attracts so many artists – the views are stunning. The surrounding countryside delights walkers and cyclists alike.
