The beautiful scenery outside Ulverston is one of Britain's best-kept secrets.
Off the beaten track and away from the hustle and bustle of tourist traps such as Windermere and Ambleside, this southwest corner of the Lake District offers unspoilt, untrodden landscapes and peaceful vistas on the great mountains of the Lake District. What more idyllic a place to present Classical Music performed by some of the world's top musicians - and the beer is good too!
Ulverston lies just four miles south of the Lake District National Park so has easy access to some of the area's scenic walks and stunning views.
Ulverston is a traditional market town, is known as the region's 'festival town', and its place on the map secured on account of it being the birthplace of Stan Laurel. Visually speaking, the Sir John Barrow Monument - also known as 'the Hoad' - is the town's trademark structure and greets you on the approaches to the town.
