Trains to Ulverston glide along the charming Furness Line, passing over the River Leven estuary via a tremendous viaduct before pulling up in this quaint Cumbria market town. The station itself dates back to 1873, and is a splendid example of Victorian railway architecture, with a fine clock tower and glass awnings. Ulverston itself is delightful market town in the middle of the Furness peninsula, with historic buildings and streets lined with independent shops. The maritime district is worth a peek, as the town once exported copper, slate and linens around the globe; head to the lighthouse on Hoad Hill for majestic views of Morecambe Bay and the Lake District. Other highlights include the new Lakes Glass Centre and Cumbria Crystal, where you can watch crystal making and engraving. And the town was also the birthplace of Stan Laurel - find out more at the Laurel and Hardy Museum, about 10 minutes' walk from the station.
