Morecambe Bay

Morecambe Bay is a large estuary stretching from Walney Island in Cumbria to Fleetwood in Lancashire.  It has the largest expanse of intertidal mudflats and sand in the United Kingdom, which are possible to cross with The Queen’s Official Guide, Cedric Robinson MBE during Spring & Summer. The area offers spectacular coastline views and amazing wildlife and adventure experiences.
