Heard somebody had cut him down and tried to run away with him and was very disappointed. However, when we went in April, he was back there and I got a picture with him. He looks very cute.

A statue to remember one of our most iconic comedians! The statue surrounded by lovely flower beds and seagull figures. Obviously a popular landmark due to the amount of visitors constantly taking photos by his side.

Liked the fact that there was a statue in honour of Morecambe most famous citizen but it is situated with extremely steep steps at both sides which although there is a ramp made it a bit problematic when you are on a mobility scooter as there is not a lot of turning space at the top.

A day doesn`t go by without people flocking to take pictures with this statue. I can`t wait for the next one promised of both Morecaqmbe and Wise. Hope it will be as entertaining as the original.

As well as the statue, in characteristic pose, the words from Bring Me Sunshine, some of his catchphrases, and many of the names of the guest stars on the Morecambe & Wise show are engraved on flagstones near it. the whole sea front has plenty of sculptures and is well worth walking along.

One of the best memorials to one of Britain's best loved comedians. You simply have to smile if not laugh as you are reminded of some of Eric's classic lines. A lot of thought and love has gone into this memorial.

From the railway station, walk towards the sea (past the market, towards Aldi!) turn right on the Promenade... you will find the sculpture on your way... It is not just a magnificent representation, not just a compliment (and complement) to this seaside resort It is also a wonderful family piece which shouts at you to take its picture, and take...
