❗ Following the latest government recommendations, Richmond Castle will be closed until 1st May. During this time we’re keeping open our free-to-enter sites which are unstaffed and have large open spaces.
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.History of Richmond Castle
