It's starting to feel like Spring in Richmond.
The Georgian Theatre Experience has begun a new season. Visitors will discover a fascinating world of showbiz from times gone by. Guided tours of the UK’s oldest working original theatre now run hourly from 10:00 to 15:00, Monday to Saturday. You'll discover hidden trap doors, peek inside underground dressing rooms, hear entertaining tales of the riotous Georgian audiences who packed themselves into the pocket-sized auditorium, and see the beautifully restored Woodland Scene – Britain’s oldest surviving stage scenery.
Tours are £8/£3 (adult/child), with tickets valid for 12 months, to allow repeat visits. Follow this link to learn more.
A-a-a-and... Mighty Richmond Castle, the best-preserved Norman stronghold in England, has woken from its winter slumber, and is now open every day, 10:00 - 16:00 - but only until 26 February, when it reverts for a while to weekends only. So if you want to explore the extensive ruins, the banqueting hall high above the rushing River Swale, and the views over the ancient town from the top of the great tower... then move fast!
You can book tickets for Richmond Castle here. PS: dogs are now admitted, so you can bring the whole family.
