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.

Where can I park my car?

There are many car parks in Appleby, including the Castle and Appleby Grammar School (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.

There is usually space at the Appleby Grammar School for 6 coaches on the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) for parking. Please contact the Grammar School on 017683 51580 to pre-book.

Public Toilets

Public toilets in Appleby are provided by Westmorland & Furness Council at Broad Close Car Park (open 24 hours) and the Market Hall (open 8am-9pm). The amenities are regularly inspected and any damage due to vandalism will be reported to the police and may result in the toilets temporary closure. 

A toilet for the disabled is available at Appleby Tourist Information Centre on Boroughgate.

In addition, more than thirty temporary toilets are available within Appleby for visitors to the Fair.
