Holidays in Richmond

The scenery in the Yorkshire Dales is breathtaking, and the lure of experiencing it up close and personal is irresistible. Richmond has more than its fair share of beauty including the ruins of the magnificent Richmond Castle. Walk along lanes with names like Friar’s Wynd that show their age, and you will see picturesque sights like the Franciscan Friary belltower, medieval gateways, a cobbled market square and public gardens with colourful flowers and shady trees. Richmond sits beside the River Swale, and a walk beside the river to Richmond Falls or Hudswell Woods is a lovely way to spend an hour.

Outside of town, the landscape opens up into miles of wilderness. The Yorkshire Dales National Park and the North Pennines Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) are both close by, as is the North York Moors National Park. The long-distance Richmond Way footpath starts just below the castle’s Great Keep, stretching to Lancaster Castle. Wainwright’s Coast to Coast footpath also passes through the town. Those keen for a challenge could even take on Yorkshire’s Three Peaks. Nearby beauty spots include Aysgarth Falls, the Swaledale Valley, villages and towns like Reeth, Bedale and Middleham, and landmarks that include Easby Abbey.

Cyclists also have a fantastic choice in a landscape that is a favourite with cyclists of all disciplines. The opening stage of the 2014 Tour de France passed close by, making the most of tough climbs and swift downhills, while the Dales Bike Centre has a variety of off-road trails and bike hire. Other outdoor activities where visitors can immerse themselves in the beautiful landscape include fishing, golf, climbing, abseiling and gorge walking, with local companies like Alfresco Adventures organising guided activities.

Richmond has long been a favourite place in the north. The earliest “visitors” were the Romans, followed several centuries later by the Normans, who built the magnificent castle and keep on the hill above the town. Anglo-Saxons, Danes and Vikings have all spent time here too. Richmond thrived, and in 1441 Henry IV granted the town a market charter which made it even more popular for a medieval day out. Georgian prosperity has helped shape the facade of the town’s architecture and the addition of the cobbled marketplace, which is one of the biggest in England. You can find your way to the centre of town by looking up and searching for the spire of the Church of the Holy Trinity and the obelisk.

Stop by the Richmondshire Museum to find out more about the history of the people in the area. Richmond Castle is splendid, notably the Great Hall, and is one of the best examples of Norman building in England. Henry VII inherited the title of the Earl of Richmond when he was born and renamed his home in the south, Shene Palace in Surrey, in honour of this. Although there are many places named Richmond around the world, including three in the UK, Yorkshire’s Richmond is the father of them all.

Richmond is full of places to eat, drink and shop. In addition to the Saturday market, there are clothing, food and homewares shops. Richmond also has several galleries where visitors can admire local artists, while The Station combines all three pastimes with a gallery, shops and a restaurant. Visitors to Richmond can take in a show at the Georgian Theatre Royal, try their luck on the horses at Catterick Racecourse, and take a peaceful stroll around the Foxglove Covert Nature Reserve.

Nearby attractions include Jervaleux Abbey, Barnard Castle, and a brewery tour at The Black Sheep Brewery in Masham. Thirsk is a lovely place for a day out, as is Ripon.

Richmond is a beautiful holiday destination for all ages and all seasons. As with many places in the north of England, the weather is predictable only in its unpredictability, so pack suncream and wellies and you won't go wrong.
