Why not hop on the train or tootle down the cycle track to Morecambe, our neighbouring seaside town. Have an ice-cream or a cone of chips whilst you stroll down Morecambe prom and enjoy breathtaking views across Morecambe Bay to the Cumbrian mountains. If you’re there in the evening you’d be pushed to find a better sunset than one viewed from Morecambe seafront.
Things to see
You may be lucky enough to be visiting during one of Morecambe’s annual popular seaside events such as the Kite festival or the Vintage By The Sea fesival.Don’t forget to visit the Eric Morecambe Statue, which looks out across the promenade, the stone jetty out into the bay, and The Tern Project, a series of public art installations inspired by the birdlife of Morecambe Bay.
And, of course, there’s the 1930s Midland Hotel, the art deco masterpiece which has been lovingly restored in recent years. Enjoy an afternoon tea overlooking the panorama of the Bay, treat yourself to a cocktail in the Rotunda bar, and visit the stunning Eric Gill artworks on display in the foyer and at the top of the sweeping staircase.< Back
