Already looking to my away games next season, normally can only make one a month so:
Luton in September, Cheltenham October, Yeovil November are my certs for this year.
Good midweek game for a change in February - Wycombe.
Will pencil in Cambridge March and Newport April.

Just to clarify Morecambe is never alluring!

You wouldn't recommend making a weekend of it then?
Is there more to Morecambe than lots of very big caravan parks.

I am probably being a bit unfair as it is a lot better than it was, and will only get better further as the gentrification following the opening of the link road to the M6 makes it 100x easier to get to and from and thus a more attractive place for people to live.

There is however not a great deal to do there, in fact I am struggling to think of anything as whilst they have imported a small beech now (Morecambe Bay is mud mainly and thus you often cannot even see the sea) its not that exciting see https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attractions-g191270-Activities-Morecambe_Lancashire_England.html , so if making a weekend of it I would probably stop there on the way to or from the Lakes or Dales?

Actually looking at it, its Morecambe Carnival on the day we play them surprised that they have allowed them to play at home on the same day?

My favourite Morecambe fact is that American Hip-hop legend Busta Rhymes lived there for a while as a young lad.

Is that true as it is also suggested that he lived in Lancaster for a bit but I have never heard it mentioned by anyone up here? Making a few enquiries....

We stayed in a really nice B&B about 10 min walk from the ground when we played them the other year, but again as with Morecambe there is not a great deal to do in Carlisle although Newcastle isn't a million mile away on the train?

Apparently so,he lived in Liverpool too.
His Aunty lived in Morecambe and he was sent to stay with her to keep out of trouble,Fresh Prince of Bel Air style.

There's a McVitie's biscuit factory in Carlisle.... I wonder if they do a tour with free samples  Hmmm

It was badly hit by floods in 2015, taking dunking a bit far.

If you like your 1930s Modernism and Art Deco, Morecambe's Midland Hotel is a bit of a gem.

Re Carlisle, the last time I went (thank you Eddy Murray) we had a night in Blackpool before driving up to step foot into Scotland and then dropped back down for the match. Funny Girls in the former Odeon is a hoot.
