5 Reasons to Holiday in Ulverston 

Walking - The scale of the landscape expands the further north you travel in England, making Cumbrian and the Lake District pretty spectacular. The 74-mile Cumbria Way footpath starts in Ulverston and stretches north to the Scottish Border at Carlisle, and is a fantastic way to experience the scale of the scenery first hand. Locally, walkers can climb to the Hoad Monument on Hoad Hill and enjoy the stunning views from the top, especially if the monument is open - you’ll know because the flag is flying. Birkrigg Common is usually dry underfoot thanks to a limestone base. The same stone was dug up to create the nearby Druid’s Circle - the only concentric stone circle in Cumbria. An easier but no less beautiful alternative to these walks is along the Ulverston Canal where there is a wheelchair and buggy-accessible path and no elevation. Consider holidaying off-season as it is quieter but still incredibly beautiful. Ulverston WalkFest runs over two weeks in spring and highlights the wonderful walks the area can offer.

History - Ulverston lays claim to the world’s only Laurel and Hardy Museum. Stan Laurel was born in a cottage on Argyll Street in 1890 and went on to become one of the world’s most innovative and beloved film stars. Ulverston received its market charter from Edward I in 1280 and offers shoppers both an indoor market that is open five days a week (closed Wednesday and Sunday) and an outdoor street market every Thursday and Saturday. The Grade II listed Victorian train station has mainline services to Barrow-in-Furness, Carlisle and Manchester. Before trains, Ulverston was an important port with local linen and minerals leaving its docs enroute to the rest of the world. Other historical sites include Conishead Priory, which has been wonderfully restored and is now used as a leading Buddhist Centre, Stott Park Bobbin Mill, and Swarthmoor Hall which was home to the founder of the Quaker movement, George Fox.

Events - Some of the wonderful events in Ulverston include the Taste Cumbria Food Festival, the popular CAMRA Beer Festival, the South Cumbria Music Festival, the Ulverston and North Lonsdale Show in late July, and a Dickensian Christmas Festival at the end of November to get people in the festive spirit.

Shopping and Eating - Ulverston’s shops, cafes and pubs are a celebration of local produce, not only food and drink but also crafts and gifts. The town’s high street has shops selling homewares, clothing, antiques and curios, flowers, books, bikes and music. In addition to the grocers, butchers and bakeries, the town has three small supermarkets and a choice of tea rooms and pubs.

The People - Ulverston has a friendly community that welcomes visitors. People are justifiably proud not only of their town but also the surrounding area. The festivals and events are inclusive of everyone - locals and out-of-towners alike. Ulverston is thriving with a wealth of amenities and a stunning landscape that makes it a wonderful holiday destination at any time of the year.
