  • The statue itself is great and appropriate but the "sayings and slogans" in the paved area around it are what really make this - I laughed out loud reading them. Definitely a photo opporyunity.  more »
  • Lovely day out and great for families of any age. Definitely worth a visit to if in Morecambe not to be missed  more »
  • Well you can't come to Morecambe without seeing this statue at least once. Yes the actual statue isn't huge. But the statue is only a small part of tribute. I loved the steps and all the facts written...  more »

  • As far as statues go, it's a pretty decent. Had a bit of an incident few years ago where someone tried to steal him hacking his leg off, but he's back now. Nice view of the bay too.
  • Loved walking along the promenade, pick up a guide there's a easy trail to follow. Took my mum all along it in a wheelchair chair. Eric is a long the promenade . free parking on side of road. Loved the bird theme and sculptures etc... who ever did it has done a good job.
  • it is what it is, its a statue of Eric Bartholamew. Otherwise known as above. Everyone who visits needs to get a picture with him. The gardens around him are well laid out and have a variety of beautiful flowers. Parks nearby for the kids and food and drink across the road. If you go to Morecambe, its a given that you have to have a picture with this famous statue!
  • It's ok ....join the tens of thousands of others who have posed alongside this statue of a comedic legend Eric Morecambe....the good thing about it is, cross the road at this location and you are basically in the refreshment zone of Morecambe services!
  • Worth the detour from the lake district on the way home. A quaint little statue, nicely situated. Parking is at a premium rate of course, thanks council. Be sure to check out the floor for the typographical installation of quotes! A nice spot. Enjoy!
