The Green is one of the prettiest locations in Richmond with its quaint cottages and houses clustered around an open grassed area. In times gone by, it was a hub of industry in the form of knitting, hoisery and tanning. It also hosted the annual goose fair and the geese would be driven from as far as Lancaster.
From this part of town, you can gaze up to the castle walls or across to the impressive Georgian folly of Culloden Tower sited on a small hill to the west.
The Green is also a good starting point for many walks. From here, you can follow a picturesque riverside route to Round Howe through the woods, or onwards towards town via another riverside path that leads to the waterfalls.
Green Bridge is one of the most photographed spots in town, whether you capture it from high above on Castle Walk or as a long-distance shot from the approach to the town from Round Howe.
The Green can be reached by foot from the Market Place via New Road, Cornforth Hill or Bargate. Be warned, it is pretty steep but you will be able to explore some of Richmond's oldest streets en route. Don't miss the postern gate on Cornforth Hill which dates from around 1312 and is part of the old town wall.
A public pay and display car park is situated on The Green.
