Richmond Castle

Richmond sits just outside the Yorkshire Dales National Park and is one of the most dramatically-beautiful, architecturally-rich towns in the north of England, dominated by Richmond Castle. This castle is one of the greatest Norman fortresses in Britain, which occupies a commanding position on a cliff high above the River Swale, with breathtaking views across the Yorkshire Dales. The old town huddles around the castle and its imposing walls. Behind the town’s cobbled market place leads into the remarkable Georgian part of town filled with independent shops as well as great places to eat and drink and a unique Georgian Theatre, which offers both modern and period plays, and musical events in an authentic setting.

There are some superb walks from the town itself. You can walk to and from beautiful Easby Abbey in the footsteps of the legendary Drummer Boy, or along the Hudswell Woods, and further into Swaledale past Willance’s Leap to Marske and Marrick.

Aysgarth Falls

Aysgarth is a sleepy little Yorkshire village that is not to be missed, only a short drive from Leyburn. A mile East of the village lies the famous Aysgarth Falls, an impress spot which sees the River Ure hurl itself over three massive rocky steps, the Upper, Middle and Lower Falls. The upper and middle fall was featured in the film Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. There are plenty of woodland walking trails to explore with spectacular views along the way before treating yourself to a slice of delicious home-made cake from the café next door the National Park Centre.
