The historic market town of Ulverston is famous for many things: it’s the birthplace of comedy legend Stan Laurel, host to world-famous street festivals like ‘Another Fine Fest’ and ‘Dickensian’ and the proud home of some of the finest independent pubs in the country.
With a number of award-winning distilleries and breweries based right here in town and dozens more within Cumbria, Ulverston’s pubs are on to a winning formula, combining the best local spirits and beers with countrywide favourites.
Ulverston is, in fact, so proud of its vibrant pub scene that they’ve created a guide to help ensure your visit takes you to the best places around town.
The Stan Trail celebrates local lad turned Hollywood star Stan Laurel and will take you from the Bowler Bar in the Laurel and Hardy Museum out to the Stan Laurel Pub, while the Far-Flung Trail highlights the hidden gems further out from the town centre.
If they don’t take your fancy (or you’ve ticked them off your list!), then the King’s Trail and the Queen’s Trail include highlights like the intimate and eclectic Gather, and the warm, welcoming Old Friends Pub.
