Come and join us on the exciting walk across Morecambe Bay, led by the Queens Official Guide, Cedric Robinson MBE.
The walk is 7 to 8 miles long, and starts from the stony foreshore at Arnside, proceeding onto the sands and across the channels of the River Kent. The height of the river is usually between knee and thigh deep. Old, comfortable shoes or trainers are recommended rather than expensive walking boots or wellies, and shorts or trousers that you can roll up. There are dangerous quick-sands in the bay. To ensure your safety, stay with your group and follow instructions from the Guide and his helpers at all times.
Please arrive in good time to set off with the group, the bay is too dangerous to cross without a guide.The weather can be anything from driving rain to hot sun, so come prepared to protect yourself against the elements. It is very exposed out on the bay. Don't forget to bring a bottle of water and a snack. The last part of the walk involves crossing gullies on the saltmarsh. These can be quite wide and slippery, so walkers need to be agile enough to get across. The walk ends at Kents Bank Railway Station.
Any last minute instructions or updates will be given by email where possible. They will also be posted on our website, it is your responsibility to check for the latest news.
