Morecambe Bay

We say
With a front row view across the shifting sands of Morecambe Bay, The Midland is a lovingly-restored Art Deco hotel that opened in the 1930s and was saved from dereliction in 2012 and returned to the splendour of its heyday. The tidal sands of the bay are perfect for an active seaside break with sailing, paragliding, windsurfing, kitesurfing and mountain biking.

Recommended hotel: The Midland

The Midland says

Morecambe Bay is best known for its spectacular ever-shifting tidal sands and tasty shrimps. But the popular seaside town of Morecambe, on Lancashire’s coast, is also home to one of the UK’s most striking Art Deco hotels – The Midland.

  • Stunning seascapes
  • Adrenaline sports
  • Art Deco hotel

Overlooking the sands, this beautifully-restored gem of a hotel is a visual feast but the warmth of the welcome that awaits inside will delight too.

Our 44 rooms and suites are contemporary in style, light and airy – most have a sea view and some have sliding glass doors leading to a balcony overlooking the sea. Our Luxury Sea View room has its own vast roof terrace.

You will feel as if you are virtually on the beach in the Sun Terrace Restaurant with its sweeping views across Morecambe Bay.

Morecambe Bay stretches from the south west coast of Cumbria to Fleetwood in Lancashire, taking in coastal towns such as Grange Over Sands, Heysham and Morecambe itself. If you’re wondering what there is to do, the bay is home to a vast range of outdoor activities such as paragliding, parachuting, windsurfing, kitesurfing and sailing. Mountain biking is another popular choice and you are on the edge of the Lake District so endless walks await if you want to venture further.
