WELCOME TO ULVERSTON TOWN COUNCIL

Welcome to Ulverston. A delightful and historic market town only a few miles from Windermere. The town has a number of festivals every year, independent shops, an indoor Market Hall which is open 5 days per week. The Market Hall is home to the recently opened Visitor Information Point which is staffed by friendly volunteers Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The town hosts a street market on Thursday and Saturday. Sir John Barrow Monument on Hoad Hill above the town, is open every Sunday from Easter until the end of October from 1 - 5, and throughout bank holiday weekends.

The Town Council run a Sunflower Scheme for people with any hidden disability. Pop into the VIP in the Market Hall, or the Coronation Hall and collect your badge or ribbon and shopkeepers will know you need a little bit more help.

We also run a Courtesy Toilet Scheme where businesses in the town provide their facilities if you need them. The complete list is on our leaflet which you can find on the leaflet tab below.
