Richmond Castle and its collection

Richmond Castle

Sited on a rocky promontory above the River Swale, the great castle of Richmond is among the oldest Norman stone fortresses in Britain, begun in the decades after the Conquest. The story of conscientious objectros imprisoned in the keep during World War I is told in an interactive display exploring Richmond's nine centuries of development, and woven into the contemporary Cockpit Garden. There are views over Richmond from the roof of the castle.
