Known as the jewel in the heart of North Yorkshire and the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, Richmond is a beautiful market town, rich in interesting architecture and history evidenced by the impressive Norman castle which towers above the town and the quaint, cobbled streets lined with buildings from the Georgian era built from the very distinctive, Yorkshire mellow stone.
Voted in the top five best places to live within Yorkshire, Richmond continues to the preferred choice for those wishing to base their home and work life in the Dales. And why wouldn’t you? Good rail links offer journey times of less than 3 hours to the city of London whilst trips into neighbouring Cumbria and Lancashire for the commuter are very manageable. Local schooling is excellent for all stages and further education and university options are close by.
Not only a superb place to live, Richmond is extremely popular with day trippers and those looking for a convenient base for touring the Dales too resulting in the second home market being particularly buoyant. Good returns can be expected from cosy cottages and classy apartments in the heart of the town but also from quality developments on the fringes of Richmond.
