Welcome Back – Information for Visitors

Morecambe Bay looks forward to welcoming you back safely.


Know before you go – What’s Open?

We have pulled together a downloadable list of Attractions, Restaurants and Cafes, Shops and Places to Stay which are now open.

We are also working hard to update our website listings on our Stay, Eat & Drink, What To Do and Shopping pages.

However, due to the ever-changing nature of the situation we are currently in, please always check with restaurants, attractions, shop and accommodation providers before visiting by calling ahead or checking their websites directly.


Feel assured about your stay

VisitBritain has launched a new industry standard mark as a way of supporting tourism businesses and providing reassurance to visitors.

The industry standard is a way of letting you know which businesses have made necessary changes to their day-to-day workings, including social distancing measures and staff training.

Keep an eye out for the ‘We’re Good to Go’ logo on our website listings when planning your trip online.


Questions about your visit? – We are here to help you.

We understand you may have queries about your visit to Morecambe Bay, and our friendly Visitor Information Teams are now available by phone and email to help you plan your trip:

Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 10am – 4pm | (01524) 582808 | morecambevic@lancaster.gov.uk

Booking your stay in Morecambe Bay – 

Morecambe and the surrounding area is the prefect place for a relaxing break and is also a wonderful base for a longer stay in order to explore the wider area.

Many hotels, guest houses and self catering places on our Where to Stay pages have opened and are taking bookings again.

All places will have their own restrictions in place to ensure your safety which you should check and understand prior to making a booking.


Parks and Outdoor Spaces – 

Morecambe Bay has a wealth of wonderful outdoor spaces to explore and enjoy. Here are some posts from our Inspire blog that you may find helpful –


Eat Out to Help Out –

Many local restaurants, pubs and cafes are part of the Eat Out to Help Out promotion – offering up to £10 off a meal throughout August when dining inside (Monday-Wednesday only. Not available for takeaway food).

During lockdown, many of the district’s food and drink outlets started offering takeaway and delivery options which you can still view here.


Indoor Attractions – 

You can view places that are welcoming visitors again but please note many of our larger attractions are still preparing to reopen.

For those which have reopened, please contact the attractions directly to find out about any changes to their visiting arrangements (i.e. timed tours/amended opening hours/pre-booking necessary).


Shopping – 

Visit our Shopping pages to find out which independent shops and boutiques have reopened.


Car Parks and Toilets – 

All City Council car parks are open and are charging again (To encourage minimal cash use, please use Ring-Go cashless parking). A useful website for toilets which are currently open can also be found here – www.lockdownloo.com/


Events – 

Most events up to the end of October are now cancelled so we have removed our What’s On pages from our website but we look forward to reinstating them when events are safe and able to run again.


We look forward to seeing you soon safely,
