Local information

  • Situated just north of Morecambe Bay, the historic market town of Ulverston boasts a number of charming independent local shops and real ale pubs as well as a range of High Street shops and convenience stores. Twice a week there is a market in the centre of town where speciality food and great local organic produce can be found amongst the many stalls dotted along the cobbled streets.
  • The town is famously home of the world's only Laurel & Hardy museum due to Ulverston being the birthplace of Stan Laurel and it's also notable for its cultural events and many festivals, so much so that the town is known locally as the ‘festival town.' These include the International Music Festival, Beer Festival, Comedy Festival amongst others.
  • High above the town on Hold Hill and clearly visible from Stone Cross Mansion stands The Sir John Barrow Monument, built in 1850 as a memorial to the celebrated statement and local resident.
  • Ulverston offers many scenic outdoor activities but for those willing to explore a little further afield the jaw dropping and awe-inspiring Lake District National Park beckons, with some of Britain's finest scenery it's picturesque patchwork of lakes, valleys, woodlands and fells makes it one of the best places to keep returning to time and time again.
