Tour De Force Of Yorkshire

Myself and my husband spend a lot time in Yorkshire as we are ferrying our son to and from from there and we have been taking the opportunity to venture out and look at the beauty that Yorkshire has to offer.I find that Yorkshire is a relaxing and most beautiful place to be in except when your the passenger in the car with a nervous husband driving across the moors the it is slightly misty as he was very freaked out by not knowing the lie of the land however I think he is more relaxed about the Moors now.Using York as our pace for venturing out from we first took ourselves to the stunning town of Richmond ( Yorkshire ) not to be confused with Richmond in London that is equally stunning. Richmond in Yorkshire has a refined elegance about it it is almost seaside town in nature and it is so relaxing you simply will not want to leave its majesty.

If you have English Heritage membership when you are in for an absolute treat as there is a a magnificent castle than dominates the town and its surrounding.There is no tea room at Richmond castle but of course there is a shop and they sell ice creams and all the other usual shop items. I do love to meander wound castles and ruins and Richmond is a very relaxing place to be which such a beautiful vista I would love to live round there as I would never tire of such a view. Richmond Castle is set on a rockery promontory just above the River Swale this great castle is one of the oldest Norman Stone fortresses in Britain , the building of the castle started in the decades after the conquest. While visiting the castle do take in the story of the conscious objectors that were imprisoned in the keep during the First World War it is told in a interactive display.
