So much fun to explore and walk around the exterior walls. I really enjoyed sitting in the castle for awhile, imagining where the walls, floors, and doors used to be, and what was going on here hundreds of years ago.

Great historic castle in the lovely town of Richmond. Richmond is well-worth a visit, and this castle supplies historic perspective on both the town and the castle. We had a great stroll around and through this magnificent structure.

Worth a visit. Good for picnics and a chilled day out. Good for the price although the women behind the counter added gift aid after me saying no!

Richmond Castle is very large and situated right in the middle of the town. It can be seen from many aspects and looks fantastic in the sunset as it glows a lovely golden colour. It is worth going inside to explore the grassy area or...More
