During our recent stay with friends we visited the Castle, we had a walk around the building and had a lovely stroll around the grounds. It was a very pleasant visit and we'll worth seeing if you are visit that area.

A substantial castle with very welcoming English Heritage staff. The keep is fully intact and the view from the top great over the town and into the far distance. Scolland’s Hall is a highlight inside, as is the extensive curtain wall. The cockpit garden contains some dramatic topiary and there is an informative display about the Richmond Sixteen, the conscientious... More

Visited this castle with my five year old who loved the garden and the climb to the top. Sadly we never made it into the museum.

We visited with parents and our children and were pleasantly surprised with the views from the top of the tower. Lots of great photo opportunities. Was pleased that we could bring our puppy here too as some places do not allow them in. Lovely place and nice walk to Easby Abbey from here too.

Lovely Castle ruins in a glorious part of the countryside. Kids had a great time for an hour and a half running around and climbing up the walls! Lovely views!

Located in the middle of Richmond this imposing castle dominates the town. . Most of the main walls are intact and the keep is accessible to climb to the top of the tower and the views from the top of the are marvellous, but you need a head for heights. It is well worth a visit but I would recommend... More

This little gem of a castle is nicely located in the heart of Richmond town centre. Richmond has a lovely town centre that also holds the Green Howard’s regimental museum and offers free parking for disc holders (these are free and you can get them from various shops /tourist information – I got mine form the Green Howard’s museum. Onto... More

It's run by English heritage so I was expecting it would be more expensive than it was. There's lots of the castle to look around. The keep is mainly intact and you can go up to the roof with splendid views over Richmond and the surrounding area. Lots of nooks and crannies in the near-complete walls too. We'll worth the...

A place well worth the visit, just built after the Norman Invasion, read more about it as other places in the world are named after this Richmond the original. Took some wedding photo`s in here a great location for this. And of course eductational for schools and history students alike and of course famillies.
