Morecambe’s Midland Hotel is the ideal place to enjoy an afternoon tea. Whether it’s with a pot of tea or a glass of champagne, you can delight in a three-tiered selection of cakes, scones and sandwiches. Sit back and relax in 1930’s art deco surroundings, and take in the panorama of Morecambe Bay.
An easy destination from Castle View by train, or by bike along the cylce track, so no need to drive if you’re leaning towards the champagne option!
The Midland Hotel
The Midland Hotel was desinged by architect Oliver Hill. The front of the hotel is decorated with two Art Deco seahorses, which can be viewed at close proximity from the hotel’s rooftop terrace. Hill designed the hotel to complement the curve of the promenade, which allowed guests to view the spectacular panoramas and sunsets of the Morecambe Bay coast.
The Hotel was left in disrepair for many years but was renovated in recent years by Urban Splash‘s regeneration project, reopening to the public in 2008.
