The Lancashire coast is a varied stretch of land, along which you’ll find a number of seaside towns and villages each with their own personality. Blackpool has long been the most popular, for its arcades and theme parks that appeal to families, whilst Morecambe is considered to be something of a quieter, more cultural alternative. Morecambe is certainly a vibrant and fun place to spend your time, but staying in a hotel in Morecambe is a slightly more peaceful experience than a stay near the bright lights, bars and bracing winds that you’ll find less than an hour down the coast.
Morecambe is a traditional resort with parks, theatres and museums and with a long promenade that stretches beside the sandy beach, dotted with occasional statues. The most famous of those statues is the statue of comedian Eric Morecambe, who took his stage surname from his beloved childhood hometown. Morecambe is surrounded by beautiful natural landscapes, including marsh areas and rural spaces, appealing to walkers and to cyclists as well as other outdoor enthusiasts.
During a holiday or short break in Morecambe, you might decide to spend some time exploring the local markets. Visit a wide variety of independent local shops, where you can purchase souvenirs and gifts to remind you of your stay. Morecambe has never aimed to be a large and loud beach holiday resort, and is instead suited to those that enjoy a slower pace. A visit to Morecambe is an opportunity to enjoy day trips to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and to destinations such as Lancaster and the Lake District, rather than thrill rides, nights out and commercial attractions.
Treat your family to a stay in a Morecambe hotel and they can enjoy days at the park, time on the beach and walks along the prom. Kids will particularly love the beautiful Happy Mount Park, with its traditional attractions including play areas, swing boats, a miniature railway, a crazy golf course and a café and ice cream kiosk.
From your en-suite hotel room you’ll be able to watch the sun as it sets over the beach, with far-reaching views of the beautiful Lakeland Fells. What better scene to enjoy with a drink at the end of each day? Of course, no visit to Morecambe would be complete without some live entertainment, whether you book tickets for a local theatre or enjoy the hotel’s offerings.
