About Morecambe

Morecambe has always been one of the most popular and successful seaside resorts in England. It has one of the most spectacular views in England. Looking from the promenade the expansive coastline sweeps across to the awesome sight of the mountains of England's lake district.

Morecambe Bay is a vast tidal plain situated between the counties of Lancashire and Cumbria (the Lake District). It is one of the most important ornithological sites in Europe as the mud, gulleys and sandbanks make an ideal habitat for for birds and many forms of marine life and a great place for mussels and shrimps.
