Lancaster City Council has launched a new attractions and events guide to provide visitors with an at-a-glance menu of inspirational ideas of what you can see and do in and around Morecambe Bay in 2016.

The full colour leaflet complete with map takes you on day trips to Piel Island, Furness Abbey and the Dock Museum in Barrow, exploring gardens and stunning buildings at Levens Hall, Holker Hall and Conishead Priory and on voyages of discovery of the bay’s natural beauty and wildlife at RSPB Leighton Moss, Heysham Nature Reserves and the awe inspiring shores of Arnside and Silverdale.  The more adventurous might fancy exploring the bay by bike via the Bay Cycle Way or the coast by taking to the water with the Bay Sea School.  There is plenty for children to enjoy too with donkey rides, animal feeding and go cart racing at Greenlands Farm Village in Carnforth as well as the Splash Park, miniature railway, crazy golf and swingboats in Happy Mount Park, Morecambe.

Full details of all the great days out on offer in Morecambe Bay are listed in the new brochure as well as a list of event highlights taking place from March to December.

Coun Darren Clifford, Cabinet member with responsibility for tourism, said: “With such a wealth of natural landscapes to explore, outdoor adventures to be had and a packed menu of events to enjoy right around the bay, I am confident that having an at-a-glance guide to hand which pulls all the attractions together in one stunning leaflet will inspire hundreds of people to choose to head to our district and have a fantastic time."

A free copy of the Morecambe Bay Attractions and Events Guide is available to pick up from Lancaster and Morecambe Town Halls and Visitor Information Centres around the bay.
