Ulverston can be found in the southern area of the Lake District close to Morecambe Bay. You will find a warm welcome in this old historic market town which offers its own charm to the visitor.
Ulverston gets its name from a Saxon landowner named Ulph. After the Norman Conquest it became the property of the monks at Furness Abbey.
Ulverston was granted its first market chapter in the 13th Century and on Thursdays and Saturdays can find the market alive with stalls. Within the market town you will find old buildings, narrow streets and cobbled streets which gives the town its character along with its charming shops.
