New permanent exhibition

In the summer of 2019 a new permanent exhibition opened at Richmond Castle, telling the story of its people, history and now living heritage. In the new museum space you will be able to learn about the castle's history, from the 11th century Norman conquest to its occupation by the northern Non-Combatant Corps during the First World War. Among other things the new exhibition will feature a series of new objects on display as well as an interactive area for children, telling the stories of some of the castle's most famous and less well known characters.
