Richmond is an historic Georgian market town of unique character & charm which has changed little over time, centred on its imposing Norman Castle - whose walls & keep are now the cobbled Market Place. Situated on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park with the River Swale running close to its southern perimeter & access to the most stunning scenery anywhere to be seen, Richmond remains one of the most beautiful & rewarding places to live in the Country. The Rough Guide to Britain describes the town as 'an absolute gem'.
