Located right in the town centre just off the market square, the castle has a small exhibition above the shop detailing it’s history. Venturing outside you can walk the perimeter which has great views and also has a small garden well worth visiting in season....More
Richmond is a very large impressive castle that is well worth a visit. The majority of it is in ruins but it is the keep that dominates the surrounding town and countryside that is the jewel in this castle's crown. Interestingly the keep looks as...More
The impressive Richmond castle, towering over the market town of Richmond and viewed from the south near the river is always a joy. Visiting the castle itself, you need to allow longer than you think to truly experience this fantastic ancient monument. Visit on a...More
We are English Heritage members so have been touring the properties around where we live through the summer. Whilst not a huge amount to see it was interesting to look at the exhibition inside and walk around the ruins even though I don't like heights....More

It should be possible if you leave quite early in the day. You would need to catch a train from Kings Cross to Darlington and then a direct bus from Darlington to Richmond. The train journey is about 2.5 hours being a high speed service and the bus journey is just under an hour. The train service is used by commuters who live in North Yorkshire and work in central London so the journey can't be that bad. I hope this helps.
