Lakes & Dales 5 Days - Headway Hotel
Morecambe boasts four miles of promenade overlooking its famous bay with spectacular views across to the Lake District. There are many shops and restaurants as well as plenty of lively activities. The nearby port of Heysham offers journeys to the Isle of Man, as well as having the only remaining Saxon single cell chapel in England. Nearby historic Lancaster is also well worth a visit - in fact you're sure to wish you had more than one free day! Morecambe is superbly situated for scenic excursions and we take full advantage of this with two splendid full day excursions which between them cover some of the finest scenery in England.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.

Here we take a boat trip (included in the tour cost) from Ambleside to Bowness, where we rejoin the coach to return to Morecambe.
