Built in around 1746, it is thought that Culloden Tower
was designed by architect Daniel Garrett. Culloden Tower is built over four floors with steep stairs and 66 steps that take you to a wonderfully grand bedroom ceiling. The carving and plasterwork is reminiscent of Gothic style in the lower section whilst the upper parts are distinctly Classical. With its situation on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, its proximity to the beautiful market town of Richmond and the River Swale within sight and earshot it is difficult to find a more stunning or romantic location.
We are opening Culloden Tower to join in with the town of Richmond as part of their Georgian Festival 2019 which takes place during August and will include many activities like walks, talks, tours, live theatre, a little bit of Jane Austen, and even some eating and drinking! Bring along a picnic and enjoy the views.
On Sunday 18th of August we will be hosting Secret Salons (doors open at 5.30pm for a 6pm start), recitals of music from the Georgian period will be played. Tickets are priced at £25 and include a glass of wine; you can purchase these from The Georgian Theatre Royal Box Office.
You can learn more about the GeorgeFest19 here so you can get a sense of activities for 2019
