Step back in time and marvel at this magnificent railway station with its original booking office and waiting room, along with a period wrought iron lattice footbridge which links the two platforms. Opened in 1876, this Grade 11 listed building is on the Settle and Carlisle line serving the market town of Appleby-in-Westmoreland. Even if you have no train to catch, pay a visit and bathe in the nostalgic atmosphere of bygone times whilst feasting on many olde world reminders of yesteryear.
The station is set high above the town, with well-marked walks down to the town centre, the River Eden and the many eateries the town has to offer.
Hubby and I twice, booked train tickets during the ‘Great British Rail Sale’ for an amazing price of £6 return for us both! First to Settle and the following week to Leeds. Tea, coffee and goodies were offered for sale on board by a lovely member of staff. We had two great days out and hope the sale continues next year. Car parking is available just outside the platform and very reasonably priced. Enjoy as much as we did.
