Richmond voted one of the UK’s best towns – but we knew that already!

MARKET towns and cities in North Yorkshire and County Durham have been declared some the best places to live in the country.

Harrogate has topped the Sunday Times Best Places to Live in the North East and Yorkshire list, followed in no particular order by Chester-le-Street, Durham, Helmsley, Leyburn, Richmond, Thirsk and York.

The accolade comes in part one of the Sunday Times Best Places to Live guide, published on Sunday, March 13.

We already know how great Richmond is so it’s great to get a seal of approval from the Sunday Times.  You can find out more about what Richmond has to offer, the Visit Richmond website has all the information you need to help you decide where to go and what to do.  You can also visit Welcome To Yorkshire which will also help you plan your visit or your stay beyond Richmond.
