Ulverston and Lakeland Peninsula

The pretty market town of Ulverston is located in the South Lakeland region of Cumbria and is ideally situated for exploring the Furness Peninsular, the Lake District and the sandy beaches of Morecambe Bay.

There is plenty to see in the town, and the cobbled streets are lined with colourful buildings, an abundance of interesting shops and places to eat and drink.

The town is most famous for its diverse range of festivals which take place almost weekly throughout the year, the most famous of which is the magical Lantern Procession when visitors come from far and wide to display their hand-made illuminations. In addition, there are music festivals, a flag festival, a walking festival and a host of other colourful events.

Ulverston’s most popular attractions include the Laurel and Hardy Museum, a tribute to the town''s most famous son, Stan Laurel. Also worth visiting is the Lakes Glass Centre, home of Cumbria Crystal where you can watch molten glass being transformed into works of art.

Surrounding the town is the beautiful countryside of the Furness Peninsula. This hidden corner of Britain has walking and cycle trails to suit all abilities and miles of coastline to explore. The Cistercian Way is a favourite walk amongst visitors and passes by some of Cumbria’s most impressive countryside and historic landmarks, including the ruins of Furness Abbey. There are also sites of prehistoric interest, such as the ancient Druid''s Circle at Birkrigg Common.
