Richmond is situated next to the N1 approximately halfway between Cape Town and Johannesburg in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa. There are some 60 towns and cities worldwide named Richmond. Richmond is a lovely Karoo town surrounded by miles and miles of beautiful mountains and vast plains, which were once filled with herds of springbok. The grazing has now been taken over by large flocks of sheep, which give rise to the world famous Karoo Lamb. During the unconventional, or guerrilla phase, of the Anglo-Boer War (1900-1902) the Richmond area saw many skirmishes between Boer and Brit.
Edwardian and Victorian Karoo style houses with romantic verandahs invite you to stay awhile, as indeed a number of people do, either staying in town or on neighbouring farms, for it is the farmers that are the reason for the continued hub in town, as do tourists who venture into town off the N1, for the major highway does not flow directly through the town.
