Eric

You can't help but smile when you're face to face with Eric! Make sure to take a picture of him! On a sunny day, Morecambe sea front really is quite a pleasant walk.

A statue to bring back the memories of the sixties and seventies and the best attraction in Morecambe. Several of Eric's most famous quotes and songs are engraved on the ground and the statue is ideally situated with the background of the bay behind him.

What a fantastic statue of a very funny comic. It is ideally located on the promenade with Morecambe Bay and the South Lakes in the background. I can guarantee it will make you laugh.

Well what can you say about a terrific statue to one of the UK's favourite and funniest men. It truly is wonderful, set on Morecambe promenade with great views of Morecambe Bay and to the Lake District fells. It's a bright, lively statue that accurately reflects the joie de vivre of Eric's on stage persona in one of his most... More

Poetry is inscribed on pavements and paths. It's worth spending the time following the trail of these. But the focus is undoubtedly Eric Bartholomew's statue - we know him as Eric... More

There's a childlike delight in striking the pose next to Eric as you stand in for little Ernie Wise. When the weather is good the views across the bay behind Eric make the perfect backdrop to the photo, a fun must do for any visitor to Morecambe.

A very atmospheric position for this fitting memorial to a great performer. Well worth a visit - both in daylight and at night - to see it at its best
