Morecambe Bay

Morecambe Bay is a popular tourist destination in Lancashire. It has traditionally attracted visitors from Yorkshire and Scotland and whilst not as popular as Blackpool it was regarded as one of the best seaside towns.

Eric Morecambe is one of the towns most famous people. There is a statue of him by the sea to commemorate his life.

Morecambe used to have two piers. Unfortunately one was demolished in a storm and the other by fire. Several attractions have opened and closed in Morecambe including The World of Crinkley Bottom, Bubbles Waterworld and Frontierland. Efforts to create a Blackpool type entertainment centre do not seem to have worked well in Morecambe.

There is a reasonable beach and plenty of good facilities in Morecambe. There are regular train links and ferry services to the Isle of Man. Unfortunately Morecambe seems to be a seaside town on the decline and in need of some vibrant injection of something to make it buzz.
