Morecambe is a seaside town in the City of Lancaster, Lancashire. Morecambe itself stretches from the south west coast of Cumbria to Fleetwood, Lancashire, taking in other coastal towns of Grange over Sands and Heysham. The headlands of the Bay offer beautiful, picturesque land and seascape views of the coastline looking across to the Lakeland mountains.

Morecambe Bay is famous for its Cross Bay walks, however, The Bay has seen many tragic deaths due to the shifting water channels and quicksand.  In 2004, 21 Chinese cockle pickers lost their lives due to the incoming tides. The only way the Bay can be crossed safely is by using the organised cross Bay walks.

How did Morecambe get his name?  Back in the 19th Century, 3 fishing villages of Bare, Poulton and Torrisholme collectively became known as Morecambe. This occurred following the introduction of the railway and Harbour, around 1848.  As the railway expanded, settlements began to grow, and as they reached Bare, Poulton and Torrisholme, the settlement began to be known as Morecambe. More info 

Following the introduction of the railway, the town began to develop into a thriving holiday resort due to the attraction of visitors from Lancashire and Yorkshire.  Sadly, in the 1980s and 90s the town started to decline due to a number of setbacks that hit the town hard.  However, in recent years, Morecambe began to rejuvenate due to a redesign of the Promenade, art and statues situated around the town and the opening of Happy Mount Park that offers a number of activities appealing to families and children.

Morecambe is the hometown of many famous faces, and perhaps one of the most famous landmarks is the statue of Eric Morecambe which holds pride of place on the Promenade, which was unveiled by the Queen in 1999.
