This May Half term in Richmond North Yorkshire, spend your days getting lost in the Station, a stunning riverside Victorian railway building in Richmond with a café, award-winning artisan food shops, art gallery and a three-screen cinema that has recently been named by the Guardian as one of the Top 10 Independent cinemas… Ideal for entertaining the whole family all under one roof!
Ice cream and popcorn? Who knew that Richmond had a big screen showing the latest action-adventure to family-friendly releases.
Downton Abbey: A New Era, and Dr Strange in the Multiverse of Madness are the two big new releases at The Station Cinema as they start the month. From Saturday May 7th we are trialling our new ‘Little Engines Kids Club’, with a different family film screened at 11am every Saturday morning – tickets are just £4 per child and includes a sweet or salted popcorn. We’ve also got a live screening of The Royal Ballet’s production of Swan Lake, A-Ha: The Movie, and National Theatre Live: Straight Line Crazy, starring Ralph Fiennes.
Let off some steam this May half term with something to take away from the award-winning artisan bakery (if you can wait) or relax in the old railway station building with a cuppa and cake from the cafe.
Enjoy ‘The Early Bird Family Sharer’ with 2 pizzas, 2 chips, 2 wines/beers and 2 fruit shoots all for £25 available Sunday – Thursday 5-7 pm or treat the family to fish and chips with mushy peas and bread and butter on Fish and Chip Fridays for £9.95!
Discover the popular ever-changing open art exhibition ‘A Spot on the Wall’ at The Station showcasing more than 60 amateur and professional artists, photographers and sculptors come together to fill the walls and cabinets of the old station building with an extensive collection of works – all of which are for sale.
Each time a piece of art is sold from the artist’s spot, they replace it with another.
With easy parking, you can use The Station as a base to explore the stunning scenes of Richmond with the family or solo as you venture on your adventure. The Station is on the Coast to Coast route, and makes an ideal start, finish or mid-way stopping off point for a range of riverside walks.
