About Richmond Town’s Video

A new video focussing on Richmond’s independent businesses and attractions has been launched by Richmond Town Council to promote Richmond’s shops, businesses and attractions.

The video, produced by local company, Trimble Productions, showcases a broad representation of independents, which predominate in Richmond. Over one hundred retailers, cafes, restaurants and pubs offer a unique blend of welcoming, personal attention in a historic market town setting.

Councillor Philip Wicks, who led the initiative said, “Richmond Town Council supported the use of the Government’s Welcome Back Fund to create the video to encourage people back into the town supporting our many local, independent, businesses”. He added “It makes me smile every time I watch it!”

Richmond, North Yorkshire - so much to discover, so much to enjoy.

A visitor to Richmond might not realise what a diverse collection of high quality businesses the town has from boutique shops to a diverse range of manufacturing businesses.

Visiting

Visiting

Richmond, especially on a summer's evening, certainly has a slightly "continental" feel: Prince Charles compared the town centre to Siena!
