Excellently located close to Morecambe Promenade and unbeatable views towards the Lakeland hills, the Festival Market is one of the highlights the town has to offer for shoppers looking for a bargain or two by the sea.
With more than 100 stalls selling an enormous selection of products, some that you would expect to find in a market, others unique to us, you are sure to find what you are looking for. There are two welcoming cafes serving homemade meals and cakes and onsite public toilets.
Shoppers can be certain to find a warm welcome from the established stall holders at this traditional market and if you happen to be visiting when the market is holding one of its special events,the atmosphere will be even better.
A trip to the market is ideal for visitors wanting to combine shopping with sightseeing. Within walking distance are some wonderful iconic buildings including the famous art deco Midland Hotel and the Winter Gardens. The promenade offers 5 miles of wonderful scenery with interesting features along the way such as artwork and sculptures, the Stone Jetty, award-winning flower beds and the world famous Eric Morecambe statue. Don’t forget to bring your cameras to recreate that famous pose.
The Festival Market is easily accessible by train, bus, bike and car. There are large adjoining car parks and Morecambe train station and bus station are close by. The market is wheelchair friendly.
