Appleby-in-Westmorland is popular with tourists as they are attracted by its history and scenic location, close, as it is, to the Lake District, Howgill Fells, Swaledala and the North Pennines.
Appleby castle, dominated by a late-Norman keep stands at the top of Boroughgate, a main street closely packed with interesting houses on each side. The castle was restored in 1653 by Lady Anne Clifford, Countess of Dorset, Pembroke and Montgomery, a noted opponent of Cromwell. Her passion for building is imprinted on the town. St Anne's Hospital was founded by her in 1651 as an almshouse, the white seats erected for the inhabitants can be seen in the cobbled courtyard; St Michael's Church in Bongate was restored by her; and at each end of Boroughgate is a cross with her motto: “Retain your loyalty, preserve your rights” The partly Norman St Lawrence Church, rebuilt in the 17th century by Lady Anne, contains her tomb.
The town's grammar school, which originally stood near the church, had among its pupils the brother of George Washington (first President of the United States).
The town is an excellent centre for walking by the Eden and along the streams of Hoff Beck to the west, Hilton Beck to the east and Trout Beck to the north.
