Lancashire & The Lakes
Enjoy the spectacular views of England’s largest National Park, with high mountains and deep lakes, whilst staying in the coastal resort of Morecambe. The Lake District is one of the most appealing holiday destinations in the UK and is the perfect location for a short break, any time of the year.
Morning departure to Blackpool arriving midday. If you are feeling adventurous take a trip up the famous Blackpool Tower, which soars 158 metres above the town, or quieter adventurers can appreciate Blackpool’s calmer side by strolling down the newly renovated South Promenade. Late afternoon we continue to Morecambe.
We begin the day with a scenic journey on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite Railway. On arrival in Lakeside rejoin the coach to Bowness-on-Windermere where we have a short stop. We then continue onto Windermere for the afternoon. This busy little town has a variety of independent shops surrounded by outstanding scenery.
We start the day with a tranquil cruise along the Lancaster Canal on board the wide-beam cruiser ‘Kingfisher’. Sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside. Afterwards we visit Dewlay cheesemakers where we learn more about the cheese making process and sample Lancashire’s famous cheeses, produced by the same family for three generations.
The morning is at leisure in Morecambe. Enjoy a stroll along Morecambe’s award winning promenade and don’t forget to visit the Eric Morecambe Statue, which looks out across the promenade, and The Tern Project, a series of public art installations inspired by the birdlife of Morecambe Bay. Rejoin the coach early afternoon for the return journey home.
Located at the gateway to the Lakes, Morecambe really is the ideal touring centre, offering an enviable combination of coast, city and countryside. The hotel is situated on East Promenade, with breathtaking views across Morecambe Bay to the rolling hills of the Lake District. The hotel has a lift.
