Richmond Castle is a ruined castle with breathtaking views overlooking the River Swale at Richmond in North Yorkshire.

With construction on the castle starting in 1071, there is a reference to it in the Domesday Book. It is now one of the greatest Norman fortresses in Britain and a popular North Yorkshire attraction.

Today, the castle is maintained by English Heritage. There is a gift shop, picnic area and interactive exhibition on the castle’s history on site.
