As well as beautiful scenery and historic buildings, we’re blessed with fabulous cultural attractions, all in or around the market-place.
As well as Richmond Castle, looked after by English Heritage, there are three independent museums weaving together the strands of the story of the town and its people. You’ll find more than 300 years of friendship and adventure, service and sacrifice at The Green Howards Museum, with its jaw-dropping collection of objects relating to the soldiers who served in this famous infantry regiment. Tread the boards, peak behind the scenes and even underneath the stage at The Georgian Theatre Experience for a fascinating insight into the life of a Georgian playhouse, whilst the story of the people who have shaped Richmond from the earliest times is told at the Richmondshire Museum. You can get discounted admission to all four of these attractions with a Town Ticket.
A short stroll down to the river, with its impressive waterfall, leads to the former railway station; built in Victorian times and now home to food, film and art.
