Richmond is an historic town in North Yorkshire, England, located in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales.

Get in[edit]

The best way to enter is by car, roads from the A66, A1 and the Yorkshire Dales all suffice. Arriva Bus services from Darlington are regular but not the cheapest way to get in, less regular bus services also come from the Dales, but again are quite expensive. Unfortunately, the train station closed long ago, so the nearest Train Station is Darlington. The nearest airport is Durham Tees Valley.

Get around[edit]

Richmond can be walked around easily by foot, parking in the market place can be tough sometimes, the weekly Saturday market prevents parking in the morning.
