Richmond

Richmond.Org

This website promotes the town of Richmond listing the main events and where to stay. Being proud of Richmond, it boasts that the town remains one of the most beautiful and rewarding places to visit in the country. Richmond grew up around the castle founded by the Normans in 1071, built on the 'riche-mont' or 'strong-hill' that gave the town its name.


Yorkshire Dales

Yorkshire Dales

Following the establishment of the National Park in 1954, the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority became an independent body, within the framework of local government, in 1997. We provide some services similar to those provided elsewhere by district and county councils. For example, we are the local planning authority. Most of the things we do, however, are particular to national park authorities.


 

Castle

Castle

Richmond Castle is the best-preserved example of an early Norman castle in England. It dominates the town and is well worth a visit. You will be rewarded by the most fantastic panoramic views from the top. The castle was probably begun in the 1070s by Alan Rufus, who had fought at the Battle of Hastings and expanded in the 12th century by his great-nephew Conan, who built the keep. During the First World War it was used as a prison for conscientious objectors, including the Richmond Sixteen.


The Station

Station

The Station is a Victorian building that used to be a railway station, but it is managed by the Richmondshire Building Preservation Trust. It is a hub for the community attracting 350,000 visitors a year, because it has a lot to offer including: a contemporary café bar and restaurant, exhibition galleries and 3D art store, award-winning artisan food producers and a three-screen cinema.


Georgian Theatre Royal

The Georgian Theatre Royal is Britain's oldest working theatre. It is Grade I Listed 'as a building of special architectural or historical interest'. It has survived since being built in 1788, closed in 1848 and reopened in 1963. Restored and extended in 2003 then improved in 2016 it still remains the most complete Georgian playhouse in its original form. It is both a thriving community playhouse and a living theatre museum.


Green Howards museum

The Green Howards were an infantry regiment, raised in November 1688. The museum tells the story of the regiment using a unique collection of military artefacts and personal items. It has been lovingly and cleverly planned making it a fantastic, fun museum to visit for the whole family.


Richmond Museum

Richmond museum

Richmondshire Museum was founded in 1974 by the Richmond and Dales Soroptimists and opened in 1978. A wide range of items are on display including artefacts from the Stone Age to the present day. There is an emphasis on local and social history the museum is a 'must' for any visitor to the town.


Easby Abbey

Easby Abbey

Founded in 1152, Easby Abbey was suppressed in 1536 and within two years most of its buildings had been demolished. However, the ruins are very beautiful and it is no wonder that they became a favourite subject for artists, including JMW Turner. There is a circular walk from BnB at 43 taking you past Easby Abbey to The Station and back. Please ask for a guide and allow approximately one hour to complete. Take your camera!


Golf Course

Golf course

Richmond (Yorks) Golf Club, situated just outside the historic town on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, is a real gem. Not overly long, it’s still a great test for golfers, thanks in no small part to its superb undulating greens. It's an absolute pleasure to play at any time of the year, a cracking little golf course in a fabulous rolling parkland setting.
