The Cumbria/Lake District

South Lakeland encompasses two of England's best known National Parks, the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales.

Over the years these magnificent mountains and beautiful lakes have inspired many famous writers and artists like William Wordsworth, John Ruskin and Beatrix Potter.

Today South Lakeland has much more to offer, from world-class attractions and events to top-quality shops, bars and cafes.



South Lakeland's festival town offers a packed calendar of events with something for everyone to enjoy. These include: Walking Festival, Printfest, Lantern Procession, Flag Festival and the Dickensian Festival.

Ulverston is the birthplace of Stan Laurel and to celebrate this, Ulverston houses the world's only Laurel and Hardy Museum and the new Laurel and Hardy statue outside the Coronation Hall in County Square.

The Sir John Barrow Monument stands on Hoad Hill overlooking the town, Morecambe Bay and the Furness Peninsula. The Monument was erected in 1850 as a tribute to Sir John Barrow - a naval administrator and traveller born in Ulverston. The Monument has recently been restored and it is open to the public whenever the flag is flying on top of the Hill.

There is a thriving arts and crafts community in Ulverston. Unique speciality shops line the cobbled streets and fascinating ginnels and there is a colourful outdoor market each Thursday and Saturday, with a Farmers' Market on the third Saturday of the month.

The town is also the home of the shortest, deepest and widest canal. It is where pole vaulting originated as a competitive sport and marks the start of the Cumbria Way, a 70 mile walk through the Lake District to Carlisle.

Conishead Priory is home to one of the largest Buddhist Communities in Europe, this Buddist Temple and historic mansion is set in 70 acres of woodlands and gardens on the shores of Morecambe Bay
