Welcome to MorecambeBay.com - Please see the newly added 'Bay Area Guide'
Morecambe Bay is part of the north west coastline of England and lies across the counties of Lancashire and Cumbria, a few miles south of the Lake District. Over 120 square miles of sand are revealed when the tide goes out, making it truly remarkable, because it supports a unique way of life for the fisherfolk who ‘follow the sands’. Visitors can venture onto the sands when guided by Cedric Robinson MBE, the official guide, on one of his famous Morecambe Bay Walks - please click the 'Bay Walks' button, above.
For the visitor, the Morecambe Bay Area encompasses a great many beautiful and interesting towns and villages, including the Arnside - Silverdale Area designated as an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'. The City of Lancaster contains a wealth of historic attractions including the Maritime Museum, the Castle and the prominent white Victorian domed building; the Ashton Memorial - which offers spectacular views across Morecambe Bay. Morecambe and Grange Over Sands are classic seaside towns, each with their own character. Please click on the 'Bay Area Guide' button above, followed by the 'Maps' button.
