If you are visiting Southern Lakeland this year, make a point of visiting Ulverston at the head of Morecambe Bay, and having a look around the area. You won't find the crowds and busy roads of many other places in Cumbria, but you will find a lovely market town, with cobbled streets, alleyways and ginnels, and a good range of friendly local shops. Not only that, there's lots to do and see in the area - the country's shortest and deepest canal, the nearby shores of Morecambe Bay, easily accessible uplands with outstanding views, charming little villages.
