Grange-over-Sands is also called the "Lakeland Riviera", since the influence of the Gulf Stream gives it an exceptionally mild climate. It lies within The Historic County Boundaries of Lancashire.

Understand[edit]

There is a mile-long seaside promenade walk. The prom was built in 1904 and is especially lovely in spring with its colourful borders full of flowers and spring bulbs. There some great shops and lovely ornamental gardens with a collection rare ducks. There are plenty of cafés and tearooms to enjoy a cream tea or tasty lunch.

Up until the Furness railway was built in 1857 across two newly-constructed viaducts that traversed the bay, the town was reached by crossing the dangerous sands of Morecambe Bay at low tide. Guided walks across the sands are available today to make the 8 mile crossing, which takes around 3 hours.
