Visiting Richmond

The museum is part of Richmond’s Town Ticket scheme, which runs between April and October, giving reduced entry to Richmond’s four main attractions, as well as discounts on eating out in the town.

There’s lots to do in Richmond; a historic Georgian market town overlooked by an imposing Norman castle.  As well as the shops, pubs, cafes and scenic riverside walks, you can also visit The Station, The Georgian Theatre Experience and The Richmondshire Museum.  The town is the cultural capital of The Yorkshire Dales!
