Morecambe

Morecambe enjoys one of the finest views from its promenade of any seaside town in England, a magnificent sweep of coastline and bay, looking across to the Lakeland mountains.

Watch wonderful waders and admire the marine–inspired artwork around the town.

Enjoy afternoon tea at the iconic Midland Hotel and afterwards take a walk to see the Eric Morecambe statue standing in his famous pose, always a favourite for young and old.
