Situated on the edge of the famed Morecambe Bay, Morecambe is once again becoming one of the nation’s best loved seaside resorts. Its revival has been cemented by the multi-million pound renovation of the luxurious Midland Hotel, an art deco masterpiece originally built in 1933 and re-opened in June 2008. Within the hotel are several important pieces by controversial artist and sculptor Eric Gill. Almost opposite the hotel is another Morecambe landmark, the Grade-II listed Victoria Pavilion, better known as Morecambe Winter Gardens. Originally built in 1897, it has also seen a recent revival and now has a growing list of events from lively pantomime to spooky overnight paranormal investigations! Continue your exploration with a walk along the Promenade, where you’ll soon come upon a bronze statue of a man doing a funny walk. That’ll be the town’s most famous son, Eric Bartholomew, better known as Eric Morecambe, who took his stage name from the town in which he grew up. The Queen unveiled the statue in 1999, one of the few civilian statues to have had that privilege. Of course, a visit to Morecambe wouldn’t be complete without spending some time enjoying the legendary Morecambe Bay. Take a guided Cross Bay Walk with the Queen’s guide, Cedric Robinson MBE, spot over 100 species of bird or simply enjoy the magnificent sunset.
