Welcome to the Richmond 950 Website

In 2021 we celebrated the birthday of Richmond Castle

Oyez, Oyez, Oyez

Our town of Richmond has a birthday this year
Nine hundred and fifty years it’s been here
Do you think this deserves a loud Alleluia
Now it’s officially as old as Methuselah!

From its birth by building the great stone castle
The town has watched life’s struggles and hassle
Then it grew to become a great market town
Which still brings in visitors from miles around

We have a racecourse and station with fine architecture
There’s so much here you cannot conjecture
So look round at the sites and take your ease
Enjoy your day’s visit - we aim to please.

The castle is one of the finest and most complete 11th-century fortresses in the country.
With a history that spans centuries there is much to discover about this fascinating structure that paved the way for the future town we call home - the Original Richmond.
