Richmond is a charming market town blessed with a spectacular topographical setting in Swale Valley, gateway to the Yorkshire Dales.
Its sloping Market Place is a delight, surrounded by mainly 18th century buildings with the Gothic medieval Trinity Church in the middle, and a clock tower at the head of it. Richmond Castle, with its commanding position overlooking the valley, was among the earliest built in England after the Norman Conquest.
Founded by the Normans in 1071, Richmond is a vibrant market town
Richmond is extremely conscious of its legacy, which includes the captivatingly beautiful Georgian Theatre Royal in its original building, now sympathetically extended to provide a range of much-needed facilities, such as a cafe/bar, and numerous examples of fine town houses built by wool merchants in the 18th century. There's a weekly outdoor market in the Market Place, keeping that great tradition alive, and a farmers' market every three weeks. The award-winning Station, opened in 2007, is stunning, with a cinema, restaurant and a range of shops serving local produce, a visit to Richmond Station is not to be missed.
