Soar through the air and plunge under the sea at The Coro this summer in our free, family-friendly exhibition programme exploring the fascinating world of animal and human migration.
Enter under the unforgettable sight of huge inflatable cartoon tentacles reaching out into the Ulverston sky and there’s a world of incredible journeys inside just waiting to be explored. The centrepiece is Heinrich and Palmer’s beautiful and awe-inspiring video installation, Aerial, which takes 3D laser scans of fourteen extraordinary migratory birds and transforms them into dancing bodies of light in a breath-taking virtual diorama, set to a specially composed soundtrack.
With a complementary series of smaller interactive and immersive exhibits still to be announced, ‘Incredible Journeys’ promises to be a perfect visit for adults and children alike, whether you have ten minutes or 2 hours to spare.

Chapel Island may be one of the “lesser-known” of the Bay Walks but that makes it all the more appealing – and intriguing!
You’ll be guided across the shifting sands by expert Raymond Porter who will be on hand to keep you safe and give you the benefit of his wealth of experience and knowledge of the area’s history, flora and fauna – Chapel Island itself is home to a variety of birds.
The walk itself is around five miles there and back, taking around three hours, and there will be the chance to enjoy a picnic on the beach before the return journey.
