What else can I really say. I get that for visitors it's a great novelty and I know local people will probably hex me for saying this but I just don't get what the big deal is...?!

To be honest not really worth a visit. Nothing much to look at. Morecambe has gone downhill big time. Such a shame no longer a seaside resort.

We were driving down from the South Lakes and decided to stop off at Morecambe specifically to see this Statue and we are so pleased we did. Eric is situated on the central promenade and the whole area is delightful with the words of the song Bring me Sunshine etc and he poses there for all to see. Absulutely brilliant.

The council are obviously doing their best to improve the front in Morecombe, it's very pleasant to walk along the promenade and brings a smile to your face when you come across the statue of Eric, providing an ideal photo opportunity.

Saw the statue as we were driving out of town. A shame it wasn't signposted from the nearby seafront area.

Being of the generation that remembers Morecambe & Wise in their prime, I was keen to see the figure. Unlike some statues, it actually looks like the person and cannot help but to bring a smile to the face. Surrounded by some of the famous jokes and sayings, it makes a central focus on a somewhat, in February, bleak seafront.
