Sitting on the edge of the Lake District, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and serving as a gateway to the Furness Peninsula, it should be no surprise that Ulverston has no shortage of fantastic walks on its doorstep.
While the famous Ulverston Walk Fest might have finished for the year, there is still a wealth of adventure just waiting to be explored. Not least is the 73-mile Cumbria Way, a reasonably flat linear walk that passes through some of the region’s most stunning and striking vistas. The path connects the historic towns of Ulverston and Carlisle and features breathtaking mountain scenery, lakes and tarns, woodland walks, glacial valleys, and pastoral walks by rivers and becks.
For something a little less challenging, the Ulverston – Bardsea – Conishead Circuit is a beautiful rural and seaside stroll that includes the historic Priory and grounds, the exquisitely beautiful Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre, and Bardsea Beach. Roy’s Ice Cream is a must-visit pit stop en route, making this a firm favourite Ulverston Walk for visitors and locals alike.
For wildlife lovers, take a trip to Walney Nature Reserve, where grey seals can be seen at high-tide year-round.
Several times a year there are also guided walks through the treacherous sandflats to Piel Island, Chapel Island, and across Morecambe Bay. These guided walks are the safest ways to explore the beautiful sands of the peninsular.
