Details

Appleby is one of the most picturesque market towns in Northern England. It is renowned for its friendly atmosphere where visitors will find a warm welcome, along with a variety of delightful small shops offering local crafts and specialities. Take time to explore the beautiful Church of St Lawrence, containing one of the oldest surviving organs in the country or delve into the history of the Grammar School, attended by the half brothers of George Washington, first President of the USA. Peek into the peaceful courtyard of St Anne's Hospital - a group of almhouses originally built for thirteen poor widows of the Castle Estate. It is still maintained by the trust endowed by Lady Anne Clifford. In June each year, the 300 year old Appleby Horse Fair is a colourful gathering of travelling people from all over the country, converging on the town to buy, sell and race horses and ponies. There are also other unique festivities, like the Rushbearing services still held in the villages of Great Musgrave and Warcop, or the outstanding Jazz and Music Festival held every August.
