The place to be on a fine day especially for families and visitors. Close to the town centre and surrounded by key visitor attractions.

Between the Town Hall to the north and Sandylands to the south Marine Road West contains something for everyone.

  • Sandy Beaches
  • Promenade to Walk
  • Eric Morecambe Statue
  • Clock Tower Cafe
  • Adventure Playground
  • Public Art Project
  • Midland Hotel
  • Public Seating Booths

The area is always busy because of the two international status visitor attractions of Eric Morecambe Statue and The Midland Hotel, however there is much more to see and do, especially on a nice day.

Strolling along the Prom is a real treat, the dramatic views of the Bay and the public art features continually draw the attention. Installed at various places along the route are large semi-circular booths in which to sit and calmly watch the activity all around.

The beach is beautiful and clean soft, golden sand - kept immaculate by the council - sand castles, cricket, sun bathing all happen here.

Cyclist too are allowed to ride up and down and almost all do with pedestrian safety in mind especially at busy times.

The Clock Tower cafe is a firm favourite for locally made Wallings Ice cream and fish and chips.

The adventure playground is fantastically popular with children and out of school times a queue quickly forms at hill top for a turn on the slide.

If you're lucky, there will be something happening at the Leisure Park, just north of the Midland. This used to be a swimming pool area but now is given over to flower beds, grass areas and a sunken area where there is often a fun faire.
