Description

Welcome to Lancashire's, Coast and Seaside...

Tucked away in the northernmost corner of Lancashire is a small but delightful stretch of rural coastline. The little town of Arnside, overlooking the River Kent estuary, and backed by the viewpoint of Arnside Knott is a quiet backwater. A couple of miles to the south, the village of Silverdale sits in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, low hills rising from the salt flats, a haven for flora and fauna.

Down the bay is Morecambe, whose most famous son Eric Bartholomew (Eric Morecambe) is celebrated with a statue on the seafront. Morecambeís heyday was in the mid-20th century, when miners came by train from Yorkshire to spend their summer holidays in its many guest houses and hotels. The spectacular Art Deco Midland Hotel opened in 1933, and following decline and closure, re-opened in 2008 as a luxury coastal hotel. Adjoining Morecambe is the ancient settlement of Heysham, now a port and the site of two nuclear power stations. In the churchyard of St Peterís, overlooking Half Moon Bay are stone graves dating from the 11th century.

The River Lune estuary, muddy at low tide, is sheltered by the remote settlement of Sunderland Point, and hides the little port of Glasson Dock, once part of the port of Lancaster, but now mainly a recreational marina. On the River Wyre estuary lies the port of Fleetwood, once one of Britainís main deep-sea fishing ports, and the home of ĎFishermanís Friendí menthol lozenges. Fish processing remains an important industry, and there are still container vessel movements at the port, but Fleetwood is also a resort, a little less brash than itsí neighbour Blackpool.

Blackpool is the heart of Lancashireís coast. A 518ft high tower, Winter Gardens, Pleasure Beach, piers, waterpark, ballroom, zoo, autumn illuminations, trams, parks and miles of golden sands make Blackpool one of the biggest resorts in Britain. Thousands visit every year for holidays, stag- and hen-parties, conferences and weekend breaks.

Lytham St Anneís adjoins Blackpool, and is a quieter, smaller resort. A popular retirement destination, Lytham has notable golf courses, award-winning gardens, and dune-backed sands.
