Culloden Tower Open Days

Culloden tower was built in 1746 by John Yorke, MP for Richmond, and named to mark the defeat of the Jacobites in the same year. It stands in the park of his long-demolished house, overlooking the River Swale.

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.
