Welcome to Richmond

A Great British High Street shortlisted town and Silver Gilt Yorkshire In Bloom winner, Richmond, with twice weekly markets and an indoor market is a delightful place to shop.

Independent retailers line the Market Place and the narrow streets radiating off it. Owners and staff take pride in their shops, giving their customers personal and helpful service.  From butchers, greengrocers, chocolate makers, gift and clothes shops through to delicatessens, bookshops, galleries and jewellers, Richmond has much to offer for local people and the many visitors attracted to this historic market town.

Car parks are located a few minutes’ walk from the Market Place with 2-hour free parking in the centre where there are individual cafes, restaurants, hotels and pubs, some with outside seating.

The town is famous for its listed buildings, Georgian architecture and Norman castle towering above the fast-flowing River Swale.   Near the town centre is the Victorian Station, repurposed with artisan shops, independent bakery, micro-brewery, gallery, 3-screen cinema and cafĂ©/bar.

Additional independent retailers are on Gallowfields Estate, where shoppers will find furniture, pet and garden centre, established cycling shop, picture framers and gallery, and more.

There is nothing ordinary about the Original Richmond, which offers a friendly, relaxing experience making shopping a pleasure.  Visit the Original Richmond Business and Tourism Association website to find out more, using this link: www.originalrichmond.co.uk
