Cumbria is a beautiful and wondrous county in the North-West of England, and famous for the Lake District National Park. A pretty market town that is home to many fascinating buildings, there is plenty to see and do in and around Ulverston.
If you are in the area, you simply must visit the Laurel and Hardy Museum. The world-famous comic duo is celebrated in a truly engaging museum in the town where Stan Laurel was born in 1890. Founded by the late Bill Cubin, clearly something of a mega-fan, it features a collection of memorabilia – including personal effects – related to the duo which is thought to be the biggest in the world. For fans of the slapstick pair, Ulverston is something of a pilgrimage.
Among the more unusual but rewarding visitor experience is The Coro, an arts and performance centre in Ulverston that plays a large part in the community. There are many events, shows, and other activities at The Coro so you will need to check their schedule to be there when there’s something that interests you. You’ll find everything from music to performance art, dance to theatre, as well as comedy and talks, or you can pop in for a coffee and relax.
You can’t visit the Lake District without enjoying some time on the water, and we recommend you take some time out at Water Park Lakeland Adventure Centre on Coniston Water. Here, you can partake in training sessions for many different water sports, or simply enjoy the views over the famous lake. There’s also accommodation so you can make it your place to stay.
Finally, you can’t visit Ulverston without seeing the vast and stunning expanse of Morecambe Bay. The Roundsea Woods Nature Reserve is a recommended venue to enjoy this amazing part of the UK, and offers a choice of trails, many of which are accessible for disabled persons.
