In the first few centuries, the castle was constantly passed from one owner to another, until it fell into the hands of the Clifford family, who owned it for 400 years.

In the Middle Ages, the castle looked like a fortress, which was surrounded by a stone wall and a moat. The main building was the Norman citadel, located in the western part of the castle. In the 17th century, a two-tiered Great Hall and a mansion were added to the castle. To the chagrin of tourists, Appleby Castle is now closed.
