Very peaceful whilst being a riot of colour, the carefully tended flower-beds sing with vibrancy. Photo-opportunities a-plenty.

Having taken a walk through the Friary Gardens, I took a moment to reflect the sacrifices of past generations who have made it possible for me, a tourist to be able to visit and be thankful.

Lovely place to potter around, portraying historical features of the area. Information boards display the story behind the gardens, which are totally free. There are benches to sit down and watch the world rush by. Easily accessible and walking distance from the town centre. Worth...More

A truly memorable place. Built by the Greyfriars the bell tower still stands. A short walk from Richmond Castle and the Market Square, the gardens are lovely and the Memorial is awesome. Benches make for a pleasant stop to enjoy the surround.

The War Memorial is striking, from a distance and close up. Good to see all the wreaths in place. My only concern is that nearby, under the Tower, there is slippery evidence of pigeons! Need I say more? Whilst this isn't strictly the War Memorial,...More
