Travelling to the Fair by Car or Coach
Traffic management in Appleby Town Centre during the Horse Fair
Highways changes are in place in Appleby town centre during the Horse Fair which aim to make the event safer. For more information see our Traffic Management Map which includes details of car parks.
Where can I park my car?
There are plenty of car parks in Appleby, including the Castle, (and the Sports Centre at the weekend), so whichever direction you approach from (South, East or West) you will get parked. Please see the Traffic Management Map provided by the Co-ordinating group for details.
How much is the parking?
It tends to vary between £5.00 per car per day and £10.00 per car per day. This is because each car park is owned by different owners, and some car park tenants pay rent.
I am bringing a coach of visitors - where do I park?
There is space for two coaches to drop off outside the Moot Hall in the town Centre.
