With a sandy beach, promenade and amusements, this traditional resort delivers all the seaside favourites. But it has a secret weapon too, its sunsets, which are evocative and seemingly infinite.
For the most electrifying views, stroll along the traditional promenade, past the famous Eric Morecambe Statue to the Stone Jetty - which features some fabulous bird-themed sculptures of its own. Here you can watch the sun set behind Lakeland’s hills, transforming the bay into a beautiful shimmer of golds and reds.
The town’s glitzy art deco hotel, The Midland, offers tremendous views of the bay too. Beautifully restored, it’s the perfect spot for afternoon tea or a cocktail.
Keeping the kids amused is child’s play, thanks to Happy Mount Park. Among the beautiful ornamental gardens and woodlands, you’ll discover a host of activities, including a splash park, indoor and outdoor play areas, a miniature railway, trampolines and crazy golf.
