Overlooking the River Eden, Appleby Castle is a 12th century castle keep, known as Caesar’s tower, joined by a mansion house. Standing guard over Eden since Norman times, Appleby Castle has been owned by Kings of England, seized by the King of Scotland, and was famously the home of Lady Anne Clifford, the great lady of Westmorland. The castle remained in the Clifford family for 400 years after changing hands many times, which saw the crown pass back and forth between various families.
