Heysham Guide

The village of Heysham can be found on the north west coast of England in the county of Lancashire. The town overlooks Morecambe Bay and is a pretty little coastal village a short distance from both Lancaster and Morecambe. The village has many beautiful 17th century cottages and is well known for its colourful floral displays, which have won Britain in Bloom's Gold Small Village prize on two occasions. Situated quite close to the village are two nuclear power stations but also areas of woodland, open grassland, sandy beaches and rock pools.

Ferry services from the village's harbour depart to the Isle of Man, operated by the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company, and to Ireland. The port's facilities include a waiting lounge with TV, some vending machines, a snack bar and restaurant, disabled toilets and a children's play area.
