The weather is warming up – finally – and the days are getting longer and brighter – finally – so why not celebrate Spring with a trip to the seaside?
There are more than forty walks across the stunning Morecambe Bay scheduled for 2012 and they are led by Cedric Robinson MBE, the Queen’s Official Guide. In 1963 Cedric was appointed the 25th guide and since then has escorted many thousands of charity fundraisers safely across the dangerous sands on Morecambe Bay Walks.
Morecambe Bay Walks are also led by Alan Sledmore who has been leading walkers for nineteen years.
The guided walks take place between May and September each year and the times vary depending on the tides. We would advise that you pre-book your walk as they are pretty popular and fill up quickly.
The incredibly famous walk currently starts from Arnside and ends on Kents Bank. In previous years it has started at Hesk Bank to Kents Bank but due to ensuring the safety of those crossing the bay, the route has changed. The tide at Morecambe Bay is incredibly dangerous, the way the sea twists and turns into the Bay changes each year and so do the dangers. Not only could you find yourself in deep water but there are also patches of quick sand so do be careful and make sure you are accompanied by a guide at all times.
You can find out more information and view the timetable for Morecambe Bay Walks.
And when you’re done splashing around on the beach why not head to The Royal Hotel? Located in the heart of the Lake District town of Kirkby Lonsdale, The Royal Hotel is only a short drive from Morecambe and offers fabulous fresh food in cosy surroundings. You can take a look at our Brasserie Menu to see what we’ve got to tickle your tastebuds and a visit to our Bar will ensure you relax and unwind. Ridiculously well stocked with everything and anything from real ales, fine wines, to spirits and liquers as well as teas and coffees.
