Less than hour from Windermere and just over half an hour from Preston, Morecambe is the North-West’s unsung seaside destination. With miles of beach along seafront, the fabulous Winter Gardens and the fantastically restored Midland Hotel there’s plenty here to keep you entertained.
A stroll along Morecambe Bay is a joy and is home to
Both the view from and the view of The Midland is amazing. Have an afternoon tea, a drink in the bar, an evening meal or book a room – but whatever you do, make sure you visit this renowned and restored restaurant. The Brasserie is a cafe by day and a Greek restaurant by night – and is a great place to start your evening. With views of the bay and the Lakeland Fells, Aspect Cocktail Bar and Bistro serves fresh, locally sourced meals and amazing cocktails.
Right on the promenade you’ll find the Lothersdale Hotel. With access to those amazing views across Morecambe Bay, it’s a great base for your stay in the town. Travelodge Morecambe is a trusted brand just a short walk from the seaside and very popular with business travellers and tourists alike.
The Festival Market is a traditional covered market with 108 stalls and shops stocking all your household essentials. It’s well worth popping here for a cuppa. The Arndale Morecambe Bay is 5 minutes from the station in the heart of Morecambe town centre. It hosts most of your high-street favourites including a Boots if you need to stock up on sunscreen – should the British weather pull one of those rare sundrenched days out of its hat.
