Took my family for a weekend break, the beach was lovely and clean and the promenade has had a real makeover, the statue is pretty central where the amenities are all based and has a small but lovely garden surrounding the statue. A must see in Morecambe!

I thought it a bit corny when I first read about this statue's being erected, but I was wrong: it's a charming addition to a seafront much in need of enlivening. And witnessing it cannot fail to raise a smile.

There's not a lot you can say about the statue...it's there...and it's awesome, if you can manage to not smile when seeing it you're a better person than I am!

Everyone wants to pose beside the statue of Eric. It is situated along the sea front, near to the town centre.

What a pleasure to have a photo taken with the great man of british comedy, should put one of little Ern next to him ASAP, sad to see the winter garden in such a stste of disrepair.

This statue is an excellent likeness of Eric Morecambe and is always well visited. I think if towns had a mascot this would make an excellent one for Morecambe. I think the way forward would definitely to build a museum near by for Eric and Ernie.

Great statue and the words around it. Although you have to be a certain age to remember Eric Morecambe (I am) most people I would think go and see it when in Morecambe.

Really nice tribute for Eric, took a picture but Morecambe is run down and dire. I wasted an hour here walking past the closed down shops, restaurants and through the horrible entrance the the market. Some places are so crap they are good, this isn't. Some serious investment is required I think. Tried some ice cream, that was ok. Stay... More
