Ulverston is a festival town, attracting participants and visitors from around the world. It is also a working town, and is home to a surprising number of hi-tech companies. Ulverston is known for the Hoad Monument (a replica of the Eddystone Lighthouse), the mile-long canal, the Laurel & Hardy Museum (Stan Laurel was born in Ulverston), the indoor and outdoor markets, and the traditional pubs and tea-shops. Ulverston is twinned with the town of Albert in the Somme area of northern France.
