Ulverston and Low Furness
The Lake District Peninsulas

Ulverston is a quirky market town nestling between the Lake District mountains and the shores of Morecambe Bay renowned for its year round programme of colourful festivals including the two day Dickensian Christmas festival thronging the narrow cobbled streets and yards.

Ulverston is the birthplace of Stan Laurel and features the world famous Laurel and Hardy Museum. Ulverston boasts the invention of pole vaulting and the shortest, widest and deepest canal in Britain completed in 1796. Shopping in Ulverston is like a trip back in time with speciality shops, cosy pubs and restaurants. Visit Thursday and Saturday to experience old time market days.
