Morecambe Tourist Information

Morecambe Beach

Morecambe Beach

Morecambe’s five-mile promenade is a popular place for walkers and cyclists to enjoy a scenic stroll or ride in any season. You can purchase an ice cream, and take a stroll by the coast towards the Happy Mount Park with its cafe, a soft play centre, crazy golf and an aqua park. Morecambe has sandy beaches, and right by the coast you’ll find Morecambe Superbowl and The Platform – the town’s live entertainment venue with music performances, family shows and comedy.

Visit in June to enjoy the annual Sandcastle Festival, where sand artists join together to create themed sand sculptures, or visit in July for the Tutti Frutti Rock ‘n’ Roll Weekender – a 1950s seaside festival with live music performances. Visitors shouldn’t miss the Eric Morecambe statue or the Morecambe Megazone Laser Adventure, nor the opportunity to shop in Morecambe’s Festival Market.
