The exhibition and castle are very interesting with fabulous views over Richmond and surrounding countryside. Ideal picnic site with plenty of space for families.

I've been wanting to visit for 32 years. Finally visited today. Richmond Castle filled me with some awe. Perfect location for a castle. Beautiful views and friendly staff. £6.30 entry for adults. National Heritage members are free.

There are a lot of steps, about 2-3 storeys but they are straight and fairly even so not too bad.
