Itinerary

Overview

Morecambe is known as the gateway to the Lakes and has the Lakeland Fells as a wonderful backdrop. This charming seaside town boasts a level promenade, stretching for five delightful miles and is also renowned for the variety of seabirds such as steel cormorants, gannets and razorbills that inhabit the resort’s bay area along with other wildlife. The local TERN project celebrates this abundance of nature with a series of striking sculptures positioned along Morecambe’s seafront while its Stone Jetty has been revamped as an area of art. Relax on the sweep of golden sands or maybe head to Happy Mount Park which dates from the 1920s and is home to brass bands, ornamental gardens, nature trails, a putting green and café. At the heart of the waterfront you’ll find a statue of the town’s most famous son – comedy legend Eric Morecambe – don’t forgot to have your photo taken!

Your Excursions

Keswick & Lake Windermere Cruise - We head to Keswick where you might like to visit its quaint Market Square, nineteenth century Moot Hall or one of the interesting museums or local art and craft galleries. Maybe you’ll fancy strolling to the lakeshore to hire a rowing boat. From here we continue to sparkling Lake Windermere where we enjoy wonderful views of soaring mountains, secluded bays and woodland isles as we cruise the Queen of the Southern Lakes.

Grange-over-Sands & Ulverston -We begin our day in old world Grange-over-Sands, a sleepy coastal retreat on the southern tip of the Cartmel Peninsula. This quaint resort has a distinctive Edwardian flavour and is home to leafy parks and ornamental gardens. From here, we move on to the pleasant market town of Ulverston, birthplace of Stan Laurel and home to the world’s only Laurel & Hardy Museum as well as a labyrinth of cobbled alleyways.

Lancaster - Steeped in a thousand years of history and has a wealth of attractions to keep visitors enthralled. Perhaps take a glimpse into England’s dark past at the medieval castle or explore the City Museum, the Priory or the Judges’ Lodgings. Take time to view the Ashton Memorial, an ornate folly nestling in Williamson Park (eight day holiday only).

Carlisle
On our return journey we pause to admire the exquisite architecture of historic Carlisle.
