Once a small-fishing village, the town has grown into a popular seaside town, often described as ‘Brighton of the North’, which draws coach holidaymakers time and time again thanks to its perfect mix of traditional pursuits and magnificent seascapes.
It’s easy to see why Morecambe adopted its name, meaning ‘Great Bay’, in the nineteenth century. Its enormous beach is no less than five miles long, stretching from Fleetwood towards an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that provides the gateway to the Lake District.
The beach provides a natural habitat for thriving wildlife and you can spend hours walking along the sand and mud flats watching oystercatchers, curlew and lapwings whilst soaking up the fresh sea air.
The vast shoreline is renowned for its spectacular sunsets which will take your breath away on an evening’s stroll. At low tide you can gain a fresh perspective of the coastline by walking to the end of the Stone Jetty that stretches out across the mudflats.
The North West coast is famed for its seafood, most notably cockles and shrimps which you can sample in the many café and restaurants in the town. The area’s Nettle beer is also worth a taste, don’t worry it doesn’t sting!
During your coach trip to Morecambe make sure you strike your best ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ pose for a photograph with the bronze statue of the town’s most famous son, Eric Morecambe.
