Market Town of Richmond
Peaceful rural location
Richmond is one of Britain’s most beautiful market towns.
Its 11th century castle, fine historic buildings, large cobbled market place and many hidden corners make it a treasure trove for visitors.
Richmonds appeal is not only confined to its historic monuments and spectacular scenery. It is also an exciting, bustling place to visit with individual shops, contemporary art galleries and a rich social scene.
Standing at the entrance to Swaledale, Richmond makes an excellent base for exploring some of Britain’s most beautiful countryside, not least the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Here you’ll find attractive towns such as Hawes, Leyburn, Reeth and not forgetting Aysgarth, with its impressive waterfalls.
Richmond also offers easy access to the historic cities of Durham, Ripon and York.
