“Impressive medieval ruinrd castle”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

We are English heritage members so a visit here was a must. The remains are still on a grand scale and it is possible to go to the top of the Keep for a great view of the surrounding countryside. Well worth a visit.

“I'm glad times have Changed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2014

Dreary day but the exhibition was well presented telling the history of the castle & inmates.
History was very relevant to forthcoming WW1 memories.
Lots of castle to see. Very easy to get to.

“A nice picturesque castle...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

Location: is good, you have to park miles away but its a great walk.

Entrance fee: £4.50 for adults.

Nothing much to see inside and in my opinion theres not enough information with the ruins...
Theres a good view of the Richmond town on top of the castle, and you need a decent pair of flat shoes when climbing the tiny stairs/ steps and cobbled stones...

If you like history, you will enjoy this, the kids will probably enjoy the souvenir shop, but nothing special...

“Worth a Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014

The main attraction in Richmond, on a sunny day nice to climb to the top of the Keep and see the surrounding countryside, Maybe not the best place on a rainy day as there is very little cover besides the Keep
