1. Find your thrills at the Beach

The Pleasure Beach in Blackpool is over one hundred years old and caters for families with children as well as thrill seekers. Situated on the resort’s seafront, the family-owned amusement park now contains dozens of rollercoasters of all sizes, including the tallest in the UK, as well as hosting ice shows, modern circus spectaculars and cabaret.

2. Go wild at Martin Mere

Martin Mere is one of Britain’s most important wetland habitats. Featured regularly on the BBC, the reserve covers over 350 acres and is visited by thousands of migratory wildfowl throughout the year, as well as being home to over 1,000 tame birds, many of which are on the endangered list, a family of beavers and enchanting otters in residence.

3. Cross the sands of Morecambe Bay

The shifting sands of the large Morecambe Bay are the setting for an exhilarating 8-mile Cross Bay Walk to Grange-over-Sands, led by Cedric Robinson the official Queen’s Guide to the Sands since 1963. For almost half a century, he has guided countless groups of people over a safe path across the potentially treacherous bay – and he has done it for a ‘salary’ of just £15 a year. Morecambe Bay is incredibly dangerous and this walk should not be undertaken alone. The way the sea twists and turns into the Bay changes each year and so do the dangers – there is deep water as well as quicksand. Reassuringly Cedric says: ‘I can read the sands like others can read a newspaper’.  The guided walks take place between May and September each year and the times vary depending on the tides.

4. Visit Blackpool’s northern lights

The magical Blackpool Illuminations keep the resort aglow throughout September and October. They have been a major part of Blackpool’s attraction since 1879 and have been a guiding light for visitors to the resort ever since with seven miles of lights and a great party atmosphere.

5. Get locked up in a dungeon

Lancaster is dominated by its castle which dates back nearly 1,000 years. Its sturdy walls are still in use today as a prison and courthouse – the venue of some famous trials down the ages. A guided tour of the castle includes being locked in one of the dungeons!

6. Play a round of golf on the coast

The Lancashire coast has some of the finest links golf courses in the country and is a regular venue for the Open including Birkdale and Lytham St Annes. Many courses welcome guests for a round.

7. Discover the Pendle Witches Trail

Pendle Hill is a Lancashire landmark situated between Bronte Country, the Ribble Valley and the Forest of Bowland. Rising to almost 2000 feet, scaling the fell can be a challenging walk (although there is also a relatively easy route from a road which passes over the shoulder of the hill). The top offers breathtaking views across the Forest of Bowland, the Yorkshire Dales and on clear days, the Lake District. However, it is the sensational events that took place during the 17th century for which it is best known. Discover the Pendle Witches Trail, a fascinating walking tour which takes you around some of the places that are synonymous with the infamous Pendle Witches who were hanged after their trial at Lancaster.

8. Enjoy a Brief Encounter

Carnforth Station is now a popular visitor attraction as it was the location for the 1945 romantic classic Brief Encounter starring Celia Johnson and Trevor Howard. The Refreshment Room on the platform has been faithfully restored to its 1940’s period glory and you can enjoy a drink, or a bite to eat, there.

9. Cycle the Lune Valley

With over 40 miles of traffic-free cycle paths, Lancaster and Morecambe are one of the best places in the county to cycle. The River Lune meanders through a timeless landscape of lush pastures and ancient stone villages, which feature historic churches and wonderful traditional pubs. The cycle track can be followed as far as Crook O’ Lune, a shepherd’s crook-shaped bend in the river and popular picnic spot.

10. Get close to nature

On the site of an old quarry next to the River Ribble, the Lancashire Wildlife Trust have used their expertise to create habitats for lots of different wildlife. Brockholes is a new kind of nature reserve, very family-friendly, with the spectacular floating visitor village as its centrepiece, allowing visitors to get as close to nature as possible.
