Morecambe town and surrounds

The district’s recorded history stretches back to the Bronze Age and they keep discovering stuff! At Heysham is one of the earliest Christian settlements at St Patricks with the unusual stone-cut graves. Next door is the Grade 1 listed St Peter’s Church dating from as early as the 7th Century. Inside you’ll find the Viking hogback (grave cover) stone dating from the tenth century.

Morecambe’s Heritage Centre, next door to the Winter Gardens has a great collection of items from Morecambe’s 20th Century entertainment heyday with rare posters and exhibits from our variety, comedy and railway heritage.  Fancy visiting an English Heritage town?

Lancaster is one of the recognised historic cities of England.  Sited on the first crossing of the River Lune it was an important Roman settlement. It is the seat of the Duchy of Lancaster – founded by the House of Plantagenets which produced ten crowned kings of England and built Lancaster’s highly impressive castle. You feel you are walking through history as many of the buildings, squares and 'ginnels' in Lancaster have been preserved. It is just 3 miles away from Morecambe.

Directions

Road Directions

Since the bypass, Bay Gateway (A683), opened in 2016, it has never been easier to get to Morecambe. Come off at Junction 34 on the M6 and follow the signs to Morecambe. From the right turning at the bottom of the bypass at Lancaster Road (A589 signed Morecambe), it is approximately five minutes into Morecambe following the signs for 'Town Centre' (B5321). At the bottom of Lancaster Road follow the signs to the car parks or continue on to the promenade/seafront and turn right at the Midland Hotel.  More car parking spaces on both sides of the road. Pick up a visitor map at the visitor information centre at The Platform (opposite The Midland Hotel).

Public Transport Directions

Ideally situated almost half-way between London and Glasgow, Morecambe is easily accessible by rail on the West Coast Rail Line. The main railway station is Lancaster and there is a branch line to Morecambe and Heysham. Morecambe is a mere 11 minutes rail ride away. Stagecoach runs regular services from Lancaster bus station which is a short five minute walk from the railway station. Taxis are available from the railway station or it’s a pleasant three mile walk down the bike track on the side of the river.
