If it’s retro seaside glamour you’re after, you couldn’t do better than Morecambe’s Midland Hotel. An elegantly arc-shaped Art Deco building with a brilliant white façade, it dominates the seafront across from the old station (now a tourist office, pub and arts centre). Built in the 1930s by the London Midland and Scottish Railway, it quickly became popular with celebrities of the time including Coco Chanel, Wallis Simpson and Noel Coward. Sadly its heyday was all too brief – by the late 1940s it had fallen into decline and languished forgotten for decades.
It’s now been restored to its former glory however, and retains many of its original features as well as plenty of new ones including 44 boutique rooms, a spa and two sea-view restaurants.
Doubles from £94 per night. See English Lakes
