Morecambe Bay: My favourite hangout place of 2022

This year, Morecambe Bay has been my favourite beach and hangout spot.

As you may know, I live in a busy city, so I often opt to find a new quiet spot every year, somewhere not too far away from home where I can make regular trips in addition to my other travel adventures. A place I can relax and take some time to replenish my thoughts while getting some fresh air. This year, Morecambe Bay has been that place for me.

Where is Morecambe Bay?

Morecambe Bay is located just to the south of the Lake District National Park in the Northwest of England.

A bit about the history

Morecambe Bay is a large estuary with the longest stretch of mudflats in the UK.

Morecambe was founded when the Little North Western railway line was forced from Leeds and Bradford to a new seashore. This new shore had formed around the village of Poulton-le-sands, which later became Morecambe Bay.

The railway brought in goods and passengers who were going further afield up north, but this new seashore soon started to attract passerbys, which then saw the growth of entertainment, accommodation and other businesses throughout the nineteenth century.

It has the most incredible sunsets and beautiful backdrop

It is an area of scientific interest because of its location, its natural beauty, and the fact that it is home to lots of wildlife.

It also has some of the most amazing sunsets because of its location. I can honestly say I have witnessed the most incredible sunset I have ever seen right here, and I have seen plenty of sunsets. It’s magical!

In addition, it also boasts the most stunning mountains in the Lake District as a backdrop, which is another reason I’ve loved going here and taking long walks down the lovely promenade.

What a nice surprise!

Normally, when I come here, I walk around the promenade and stop when I find a comfortable spot to sit, but the last time I came, I made the decision to do things a little differently.

I continued walking until I reached the end of the promenade, at which point I turned and climbed some stairs to a charming cafe that overlooked the beach. I then turned right and entered a lovely neighbourhood with a small church. Since then, I’ve learned that this region is known as Heysham.

St Peter’s Church

The little picturesque church is called St. Peters Church. It is a 14th century church with parts dating right back to 800AD and sits right at the top of the cliffside.

The views from the chapel were really breathtaking. As I took it all in, I recall thinking how lovely a surprise it all was.

There was also another little surprise too, Glebe Garden, which is right next to the church. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures of this, but it was a lovely, colourful garden with an oasis of peace and a calming atmosphere.

Thanks for stopping by today

Stay blessed 🙏🏾

  1. Morecambe is a lovely place to visit. My uncle used to live in Carnforth which is a short ride away so I had a wonderful day trip some years ago. Amazing sunset! I hope The Old Pier Bookshop is still there.

    • It sure is; I quite believe I had never been there up until this year. It’s funny because, although I had never been there in my childhood, it really reminds me of those years. I did see an old book shop, although I’m not sure if it’s the same one you speak of.

    • Ah, thank you, Rebecca. It has been an amazing place for me this year. Your right, I always think it’s worth it just going for those sunsets alone and the church. The pictures do it no justice, really. It’s actually more beautiful in reality.

  4. Great photos! Did you also see the ancient stone barrow graves and St. Patrick’s Chapel which are further along the cliff edge? Heysham is one of my favourite places, and I especially love sitting on the grassy cliff near to the Chapel ruins on a quiet day.
