A day of seaside fun in Morecambe is a must for everyone. Set against the stunning backdrop of the Lakeland Fells, Morecambe offers the chance for families young and old to enjoy special times together.

At the heart of the resort is Morecambe’s award winning promenade. Stroll along with an ice cream and enjoy the view 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 birdlife of Morecambe Bay. And, of course, there’s the 1930s Midland Hotel, the art deco masterpiece which has been lovingly restored in recent years.

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 cafes and restaurants to tempt your taste buds.

Just up the road lies Happy Mount Park, where family-friendly attractions compliment the atmosphere of peace and tranquillity of a traditional park.

At the end of the day, sit back and watch one of the best sunsets in the world as the sun dips into the sea.

Staff Recommendation: Morecambe Winter Gardens

The Morecambe Winter Gardens opened as The Victoria Pavilion theatre in 1897 and is situated on the resort’s central promenade, overlooking Morecambe Bay.

The theatre closed to the public in 1977 and was listed the same year. It is considered to be one of Morecambe’s most significant landmarks and a campaign for its restoration has been ongoing since 1986.

The annual Heritage Open Days (Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th September) are the country’s celebration of its rich architectural and cultural heritage. Offering you free access to some interesting buildings of every age and style, ranging from castles to theatres, museums to town halls as well as other hidden gems which are not normally open to the public. This is a chance to discover many hidden architectural treasures and enjoy a wide range of tours which bring to life the district’s history and culture. The Winter Gardens is proud to open its doors to the public as part of this year’s Heritage Festival. Free entry.
