MORECAMBE ACCESSIBILITY By Rob Bracewell

Accessibility in Morecambe is generally good, with a level promenade stretching several miles. Parks, pubs, the cinema, shops and other attractions accessible and several hotels offering accessible rooms. The area is served by low floor buses and the local trains carry ramps. Blue Badge parking is free in all City Council car parks, but some have time limits. It is recommended, however, to contact individual hotels or the Visitor Information Centres directly with specific requirements. Morecambe V.I.C. - 01524 582808
