Walking or cycling is a joy along the 4½-mile seafront to the pretty village of Heysham, itself well worth a visit with its ancient St Patrick’s Church, mysterious 10th-century rock tombs and pretty harbour setting. There are cycle paths galore in the area from the town centre into the heart of Lancaster and beyond, or enjoy a quiet pootle along the canal towpath. For the more ambitious, there is the Morecambe Bay Cycleway, set up and run by Sustrans, running over 100 miles from Walney Island to Glasson Dock.

For children, there are beaches, swing parks and the noted Happy Mount Park, with a children’s play area and extensive water splash zone. Para-sailing can also be enjoyed on most days at the westerly end of the promenade, and sailing ‘taster’ sessions with the Morecambe Sailing Club.

Lancaster also has a vibrant street market on Saturdays with street food and myriad other interesting stalls.

Historic Sunderland Point is 8 miles, whilst across the river, Condor Green and Glasson Dock are 9 miles: both remnants of a bygone era, one famous as a smugglers’ haunt, the other a failed attempt to establish itself as a busy port for the export of Yorkshire coal to Ireland and the west coast of England.
