Introducing Richmond

If Richmond was at the heart of the English tourist trail, you’d probably have to jostle for position with busloads of tourists and film crews, for this is surely one of England’s most handsome market towns. Radiating from the busy, cobbled market square are streets and alleyways (cobbled, naturally) lined with elegant Georgian buildings and photogenic stone cottages; between the gaps you can catch glimpses of the surrounding hills and dales. And if you want that panoramic view of the whole lot, climb the rocky outcrop overlooking the rushing River Swale and clamber about the ruins of the massive castle.
