Passengers taking the train to Grange-over-Sands will, regardless of the direction of travel, have spectacular views across Morecambe Bay. Indeed, the station itself is in view of the sea, and has an exit directly onto the coastal walkway. Located on the Furness Line, Grange-over-Sands provides services to Barrow-in-Furness, Lancaster, Manchester Airport and Preston. There are also limited services to Carlisle on the Cumbrian Coast Line.
It was the arrival of the railway in 1857 that helped transform this small fishing village into a popular seaside resort. You'll see a number of hotels and guesthouses in the immediate vicinity, but the town centre itself is a ten-minute walk south, with most shops along Main Street and Kents Bank Road.
Grange-over-Sands is also a popular base for walkers exploring the southern Lakeland fells - Hampsfell is just north of town, with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside from the monument on top.
