RICHMOND is an historic Georgian market town of unique character & beauty which has changed little over time. The town is centred on its imposing Norman Castle (whose walls & keep are now the cobbled Market Place) & is situated on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park with the River Swale running close to its southern perimeter. Surrounded by 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 .
