Morecambe doesn’t always bring sunshine, but it has always been a place that is popular with our readers.

Although Morecambe Bay isn’t a national park or even a designated Area of Natural Beauty, it isn’t a place you should simply pass by when travelling to the Lake District.

The bay is full of lesser known hidden gems that are well worth a visit, there are also more high profile locations such as Heysham and Silverdale.

The town itself is still a popular place to visit, the stylish Midland Hotel is a great destination for fine dining and hospitality and is the venue of the annual Vintage by the Sea festival.

The views from the seafront offer views of the bay leading into the Irish Sea and of course, the many peaks of the nearby Lake District are always on the horizon in the north.

Art and sculptures are also a prominent feature of Morecambe, there’s the iconic Eric Morecambe statue that waves to the promenade, the famous bird sculptures close to the stone jetty and the Venus and Cupid (known locally as Mother and Child) the piece opposite Morecambe Golf Club.

Why don’t you upload your images of Morecambe to the Lancashire Life reader photo gallery?
