Fathers’ Day in Morecambe Bay

This Sunday is Fathers’ Day and we have a host of things to see and do and places to eat and drink – so treat your dad to a lovely day out in Morecambe Bay!



  • Take the Morecambe Heritage Trail (leaflets from Morecambe Visitor Information Centre) and ‘meet’ Eric Morecambe, or discover historic Heysham via the Heysham app.
  • Listen to the rousing sounds of a brass band as you relax in Happy Mount Park -from 2.30pm on Sunday.
  • Browse the stalls for homewares, food, gifts and books at Morecambe’s Festival Market, then stop for a cup of tea and a bite to eat in one of the two cafes.
  • Go a little further afield to visit Lakeland Motor Museum and its automotive treasures, or take a ride on a tiny steam powered locomotive at the charming miniature Cinderbarrow Railway.





  • Morecambe Visitor Information Centre has gifts, souvenirs and books for avid walkers, cyclists and birdwatchers, plus a beautiful range of tide clocks, local prints and pictures.
  • For voracious readers, you can find classics and more at the wonderful Old Pier Bookshop, a treasurehouse of second-hand publications. Carnforth Bookshop too has new books with a great range of fiction and non-fiction.
  • Carnforth Station Heritage Centre offers a fantastic range of railway books, prints and souvenirs, and don’t forget to call into the exhibitions, gallery and Brief Encounter Tea Rooms during your visit!


Wishing you a very HAPPY FATHERS’ DAY from Morecambe Bay!
