  • Who doesn’t want to see the proud of Morecambe! It’s nice to see by night when the lights are on. The best part is just to take a walk along the promenade and then you will see Eric eventually  more »

  • Great place to go with the family apart from the Eric statue we have the lovely prom plenty of parks on the walk for the younger ones. Benches for us oldies to sit and take in the breath taking view. A few cafes on the trail also for lunch or just a lovely cuppa
  • Eric was a national institution and the statue is a fitting tribute to a great star and apparently thoroughly lovely man. A local hero and legend who is clearly well loved. Eric loved Morecambe which is why he used the town in his stage name.
  • That's really it. A statue. Morecambe sea front looked run down and depressive. Very sad to visit with great expectations and see such a poorly presented resort. The council really needs to look at what they offer. A statue on its own is not enough (and i loved eric!)
  • How can you not have your photo taken with this British Legend of Comedy? To be honest (apart from the Art Deco Midland Hotel) this is the only thing worth seeing in Morcambe.
  • Eric put Morecambe on the map thanks to his comedy duo with Mr wise! So it's a great statue just for that reason but as he positioned right in the middle of promanard you get a great view across the bay looking at Grange Barrow & the Lake destruct! Plus there a couple of kids play area's & plenty of food & refreshments places!
