Situated along the peaceful waters of the River Lune and only two miles from the beautiful beaches and wonderful walks of Morecambe Bay, Riverside Holiday Park is perfect for those wanting the relaxed holiday one can only dream of. Open all year round, you’ll never run out of activities to do or sights to see. Full of history and gorgeous scenery, it’s the ideal location for everyone.
Dating back to Roman times, the fascinating building is definitely one for the history buffs out there! Spend the day learning about Lancaster Castle and the incredible scenes it has been a part of, such as the Lancashire Witch trials, religious persecution, the outbreak of the Civil War and its recent use as a prison. What more could you want? With ticket prices coming in at less than £10 (or £20 for a family of four), it’s a great way to spend your day if you’re on a budget or simply looking for a cheap trip away from your holiday home.
The White Cross
Just a stone’s throw away from Riverside’s caravan park, The White Cross sits in a refurbished cotton mill warehouse alongside Lancaster’s main canal. The restaurant offers canal side seating, giving you the ideal spot to sit and watch the sunset while you finish off the last of your drinks. Suitable for all kinds of dietary needs, including vegan options, The White Cross is a place we recommend to anyone in the area wanting a delicious lunch or a romantic night out by the water.
It would be a waste to have a caravan holiday in Morecambe and not take the time to visit Morecambe Bay. Watch the sun set over the magical scenery or let your wild side out and get involved in the outdoor activities Morecambe Bay has on offer. Choose from sailing, paragliding, windsurfing, horse riding and even parachuting! One thing for sure is that you’ll never run out of things to do. The incredible Bay stretches Barrow-in-Furness to Fleetwood, meaning you can take the day driving along the whole coast in under two hours, giving you more than enough time to stop and enjoy the beaches. Dogs are banned from the beach throughout the months of May to September, but you can walk them along the promenade. Why not head towards the Eric Morecambe statue? Set against the spectacular view of Morecambe Bay and the hills of the Lake District, it’s the perfect place to take out your camera and snap a few photographs with the legendary comedian!
Home to spectacular views, exotic butterflies and a small animal zoo, Williamson Park is definitely not an experience you want to miss out on. No matter what the weather’s doing, the Butterfly House is always open so you’ll never miss out on watching the beautiful butterflies, tortoises and Koi carp. Alongside the Butterfly House is the park’s own mini zoo! Meet the zookeepers and learn more about the rescued meerkats, marmosets and even little beasts to make anyone squirm! Don’t worry, all the animals are well looked after and are incredibly safe to be around. If you need a break from the excitement of spending your day with the animals, relax in the Pavilion Café with a wide range of food options to choose from.
