'I've always been meaning to go there'... sound familiar? We have so many beautiful places on our doorstep and they're often on our 'to do' list, yet we never quite make it, there's always something more pressing to do.

Well now is your chance to rectify the situation... Grab one of our unique illustrated maps and head out to explore our spectacular coastal corner of England this bank holiday weekend... you're in for a treat!

With the sun (mostly) shining, and summer well and truely on its way, Morecambe Bay Partnership's Seldom Seen maps are the perfect way to explore the treasure trove that is Morecambe Bay.

The stunning series of 5 illustrated maps, inviting you to delve into the secrets that make Morecambe Bay such a special place, is available now from local booksellers, visitor centres and online.

The artist-designed maps cover the whole of Morecambe Bay, from Walney Island near Barrow-in-Furness in South Cumbria, all around the estuaries, peninsulas, inlets and communities of the Bay, to Cockerham, south of Lancaster in north Lancashire. They give a real insider’s view of the Bay, its landscapes and its communities, past and present, shining a spotlight on the area’s intriguing history and its fascinating stories.

The Seldom Seen maps are available individually, or as a boxed edition of all 5, from local tourist information centres and other local outlets and online from Lancaster Visitor Centre.
