Walk Morecambe Bay

From canal and seaside strolls to hilly hikes and stunning viewpoints, there's nothing more invigorating than walking in Morecambe Bay.
From short ambles to multi-day hikes with world renowned art installations, quirky cultural gems and intriguing historic monuments along the way, there are so many reasons to get out and about on foot.

Walking

Morecambe Bay has such a spectacular variety of ever-changing landscape full of wildlife and quirky cultural relics. On foot, you can get close to rare butterflies and orchids and spot rare birds on the salt marshes. Whether you stroll along the spacious, sandy beaches, limestone headlands, venture through woodland canopies or explore cultural attractions on foot, you'll feel invigorated by all the Bay has to offer whatever your age or level of ability.

We're developing route guides which lead you to the Bay's 'mini munros' - the highest vantage points where you can take in the sweeping views. You will find more details about The Headlands Way series of walks here in the coming months.

And, if you lack stamina to walk far, or have a physical disability, you can still enjoy getting outdoors in the Bay by hiring a Tramper free of charge at one of our hire points. We're expanding the network of Trampers and adding more all-ability route guides in the coming weeks and months - keep checking back here to find out what's new.
