Morecambe
The Heart of the Lancashire Coast

Morecambe is a resort town and a civil parish within the City of Lancashire in Lancashire, with a population of approximately 38,000. It is situated on Morecambe Bay.

Morecambe is a unique town in England boasting an irreplaceable view over the bay that spans from Barrow-in-Furness and incorporates the peaks of the Lake District through to Grange-over-Sands, Silverdale and beyond. With majestic sunsets throughout the year, the view never gets old and may be viewed along 3 miles of refurbished promenade.

Throughout the twentieth century Morecambe continued to develop as a popular seaside resort and today remains a vibrant and beautiful place to visit ideally situated at the heart of Morecambe Bay and within an hour’s drive of The Lake District, Yorkshire Dales and Forest of Bowland.

The Promenade boasts a statue of the town’s famous comedian “Eric Morecambe” which was unveiled by the Queen in 1999.

One of Morecambe’s landmarks is the partially renovated Morecambe Winter Gardens. The Winter Gardens is a Grade II* listed building. This was once the venue for swimming baths, a grand theatre a restaurant and a ballroom. The theatre is currently being renovated by the Morecambe Winter Gardens Trust Ltd.

Now a Grade II*listed building, The Midland Hotel was built by the London, Midland and Scottish Railway (LMS), to the designs of architect Oliver Hill, with sculpture by Eric Gill  and is designed in an art deco style. The hotel stands on the seafront towards the centre of the promenade.

Along with architects Union North and Northwest Regional Development Agency, Urban Splash refurbished the hotel and it reopened in May 2009. Besides the Midland Hotel, Morecambe offers an array of accommodation including Guest Houses, Hotels and Caravan Parks.

Improvements are ongoing in Morecambe. The Council represents the interests of the whole community and has a strategic aim to enhance and improve Morecambe as an attractive, safe and sustainable place in which to live, visit and do business.
