Morecambe and Heysham Visitor Guide
The information presented on these pages is based on the Morecambe & Heysham Street Map and Guide
From Morecambe and Heysham you can explore the beautiful Morecambe Bay area and the Historic City of Lancaster. Less than an hour away are The Lake District, The Yorkshire Dales, and the Forest of Bowland and Arndale & Silverdale Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Morecambe is the birthplace of Eric Morecambe (of the comedy duo Morecambe and Wise), and of Dame Thora Hird. There is a statue commemorating Eric Morecambe.
Heysham is the home of Heysham Nuclear Power Station, which is a landmark for miles around. Heysham Harbour, which was constructed in 1900, has ferry services to the Isle of Man and Ireland, freight services to and from European destinations, and services the Morecambe Bay gas fields. Heysham is also important for the unique rock cut graves adjacent to St Patrick's Chapel.
Morecambe Bay is one of the most important wildlife places in Britain. It is famous for its incredibly fast moving tides, which are said to move faster than a man can run, and the treacherous quicksands. There has been an official guide to the sands since the sixteenth century. Morecambe Bay is also famous for its cockle beds.
