Visit Richmond - Yorkshire's Original

Discover Richmond

Discover Richmond, Yorkshire, which was founded by the Normans in 1071. To this day, Richmond is a vibrant market town, set around a large and interesting marketplace, alongside the impressive Richmond Castle, which overlooks the River Swale.

Richmond is the perfect entry point to the northern Yorkshire Dales, with a range of good food and drink and overnight stay options in and around the town. There is also a cinema, in the old station, several art galleries, a swimming pool and – or course – a range of glorious outdoor options such as walking, biking, horse riding and so much more.

It’s the Original Richmond, with 56 other Richmonds around the world named after it – and you should make sure you visit at least once.

About Richmond

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.

Richmond is a gateway to the rugged beauty of Swaledale, and the Northern Yorkshire Dales.

Richmond 950

In 2021 in Richmond, the castle and the town celebrated a big birthday – as the town reached 950 years old!
