Grange-over-Sands Beach - Cumbria

Visitors to Grange-Over-Sands may be disappointed not to find a beach as such but they will find a lovely long promenade running alongside a wide expanse of saltmarsh. The saltmarsh itself is unsuitable for walking because of dangerous quicksands, but a walk along the promenade is highly recommended.

There are views across Morecambe Bay, and the Victorian promenade itself is evocative of days gone by. There are plenty of benches to relax on whilst watching the world go by and taking in the views. In the summer months there are well-kept flower beds and a variety of ice-cream stalls and cafes.

The fact that the promenade is car-free makes it a good place to bring children to practice riding bikes or scooters. There is an attractive park with a duck pond. Further along the promenade is a disused lido which has been Grade II listed.
