Grange Over Sands Park

A Lakeland Peninsula jewel overlooking Morecambe Bay, Grange over Sands offers a unique period charm with pretty vintage Victorian and Edwardian style shops, award-winning tearooms and spectacular coastal ornamental gardens. The town has a fascinating history as a rather fashionable resort and beautiful Edwardian elegance is retained along Grange’s main street lined with antique shops, specialist food shops and best restaurants.

The Gulf Stream warms the climate of the Peninsula resorts, hence their historic favour as tourist retreats and a host of attractions and glorious gentle strolls await the visitor to classic Grange over Sands. Take a stroll along the long promenade with panoramic views of Morecambe Bay and soak up the delights of the semi-tropical Victorian Ornamental Gardens laid out in 1865. Rest awhile in Park Road Gardens with Bay views and a feature Victorian bandstand which hosts regular concerts over the summer season!
