Morecambe offers you the chance to enjoy the many pleasures of the seaside, whether it’s flying kites, building sandcastles or enjoying the views across the bay. Stroll along Morecambe’s award winning promenade with an ice cream or have fun seeing it on two wheels, before grabbing a picnic and heading on down to the beach for a spot of sandcastle making or kite flying!

Don’t forget to visit the Eric Morecambe Statue, which looks out across the promenade, and The Tern Project, a series of public art installations inspired by the bird life of Morecambe Bay.

One building you can’t fail to notice is the 1930’s Midland Hotel, an 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 glass of wine in the Rotunda bar, and visit the stunning Eric Gill artworks on display in the foyer and at the top of the sweeping staircase.

Time to eat? There’s plenty of scope for ice cream, fish and chips and other seaside fare whilst you amble along the seafront, but if you prefer to eat indoors then there’s an array of cafés and restaurants to tempt your taste buds.
