Richmond Market Place from the Castle

North Yorkshire market town Richmond offers an idyllic heritage holiday base on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, just a stone's throw from James Herriot Country and the North York Moors. Magnificent Norman, Medieval and Georgian architectural gems all feature in the town including the magnificent central Richmond Castle with Norman Keep, elevated on a 'rich-mont' (strong-hill). Although Richmond today retains more of its Georgian market town legacy, the town was founded by the Normans in 1071.

Enjoy premier theatre in the unique Georgian Theatre Royal in Richmond centre and visit the family friendly Richmondshire Museum with artefacts dating from the Roman period and quirky exhibits like the Herriot Set from the 'All Creatures Great and Small' TV series. Daily, weekly and monthly markets all take place in Richmond, a Yorkshire market town with an exceptional choice of daily indoor markets selling a mix of goods, a Saturday craft and local produce market and monthly best farmers' market on the third Saturday of each month.

Other great attractions include ghost walks, gardens and Richmond's famous Rococo-Gothic Culloden Tower built by the town's MP John York in 1746. Richmond is the perfect base from which to walk and tour the Yorkshire Dales, nearby Herriot Country around Thirsk and the North York Moors, with great local produce markets, specialist shops, chic cafes and restaurants all plentiful around the pretty market town centre.
