I spent a wonderful time with my boyfriend. The view is breathtaking. Richmond is a small market town and the castle is just few miles so you can't really miss it.

The exhibition was very interesting, particularly the details of how the castle was used during WW1. The views from the top of the castle are stunning, would be a good place to take a picnic.

Richmond Castle is a great place to visit, it is well preserved and there is plenty to see. There are lots of the ruins to explore, including climbing up to the top of the keep. Allow about 90 minutes.

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.

There are a lot of steps, about 2-3 storeys but they are straight and fairly even so not too bad.
