Richmond Castle is one of the finest tourist attractions in North Yorkshire. The castle was originally built to subdue the unruly North of England and is one of the greatest Norman fortresses in Britain, with its breath-taking views of the Yorkshire Dales.</

Explore this fascinating Jacobean family home and its fabulous grounds with changing exhibitions, beautiful walks through the grounds, a busy calendar of events and activities, and much fun to be enjoyed by all the family.
Kiplin Hall was built in the early 1620s for George Calvert, Secretary of State to James I and founder of Maryland, USA. Tour the Hall and discover the history of the four fascinating families, all connected by blood or marriage, who have owned the Hall through the centuries. Royal relatives included King John, James I, Charles I and Charles II.
The house is furnished as a comfortable home, filled with furniture, portraits, paintings, objects and personalia of the owners and their families. Visitors are welcomed into a home that has the feeling of having just been vacated by its Victorian owners or WWII tenants!
Enjoy 90 acres of woodland, gardens and parkland and the fabulous views across the lake to the Yorkshire Dales. In the 20th century, the once beautiful gardens were in decline, however, these ‘lost’ gardens are being sensitively restored, gradually re-emerging in their former glory against the lovely, tranquil backdrop of Kiplin Hall.
From the first snowdrops and aconites in February, through to the glorious autumn colours, this developing garden is a joy! Topiary hedges surround the White and Rose Gardens. Close to the house, Perennial and Hot Borders, Knot Gardens and a Sensory Garden flourish. In the warmer months, dragon and butterflies dance in the Bog Garden.
The Walled Garden is again productive and seasonal fruit and vegetables are used in the Tea Room and are on sale to visitors. A small Garden Museum tells the history of the gardens, and a collection of horticultural equipment is on display.
Kiplin Hall and Gardens offer much fun for children to play, explore and discover. From the play ship to the bog garden; pond dipping to giant garden games; trails and fun in the Families Activity Room. For further information visit www.kiplinhall.co.uk or call 01748 81 81 78.

Richmondshire Museum was founded in 1974 by the Richmond and Dales Soroptimists and opened in 1978. Since then much has been added to make the attraction a 'must' for any visitor to the town. The building appears small on the outside but is a veritable 'Tardis' once entered.
There is a wide range of items on display with the emphasis upon local and social history. Displays include artefacts from the Stone Age to the present day.
As well as maintaining a wide collection of historic artefacts ranging from the earliest periods of life in Richmondshire the Museum has an active educational role supporting schools both primary and secondary and providing workplace experience for university students. The Museum is also an archaeological repository. Interested parties should contact the Museum for further details.
