Historic England Video About Us

In its heyday, Morecambe Winter Gardens was a sparkling example of the entertainment venues that were the essence of British seaside towns. With lavish interiors and striking features, the original complex combined swimming baths, an aquarium, the winter gardens and restaurants. After a decline in British seaside holidays, by 1982 the whole complex was closed to the public. The only part that still remains is the theatre, which dates back to 1897. With help from DCMS’s Culture Recovery Fund, the Morecambe Winter Gardens Preservation Trust and the dedicated group of volunteers are a step closer to achieving their aim: to fully restore and reopen the glorious Grade II* building, so it can be at the heart of Morecambe once again.

We are a Registered Charity and really appreciate your generous donations which are vital to us
