Ulverston is a historic market town in south Cumbria. Dating from the 11th century, the town prospered in the 1800s when a canal was built to connect with the coast, allowing for the export of copper, linen and slate. Today, tourists are attracted to the town for a number of reasons. These include walking the Cumbrian Way, which starts in the town, and visiting the world's only Laurel and Hardy museum, celebrating the fact that Stan Laurel was born in Ulverston. Restaurants in the town enjoy an atmospheric setting, with a maze of cobbled streets around the centre.
