Richmond is an historic Georgian market town of unique character & beauty which has changed little over time, centred on its imposing Norman Castle (whose walls & keep are now the cobbled Market Place) & is situated on the edge of the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park. With the most stunning scenery anywhere to be seen nearby, Richmond remains one of the most beautiful & rewarding places to live in the Country. The Rough Guide to Britain describes the town as ‘an absolute gem’.

They became so successful & admired whilst at Cambridge that they earned the sobriquet ‘“TATE’S INVINCIBLES”. Former pupils & boarders include Herbert Knowles, Prime Minister Earl Grey’s sons & Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, better known by his pen name, LEWIS CARROLL.
