Most that come to Swaledale, come for the peace and tranquility of the countryside but if you fancy a little more entertainment than the villages can offer, Richmond has a lovely Georgian Theatre which is well worth a visit and a state of the art cinema.
Richmond is 20 miles away from Muker, but for us folk that live up here that distance is not considered far. However we do have a mobile cinema that comes to Gunnerside that sets up in the village hall once a month. Now that's an experience.
