5 Wedding Venues in Grange over Sands found
Grange-over-Sands (the sands being Morecambe Bay) has been a resort town of the quieter sort since Victorian times. Now it’s in Cumbria, but when it was a northerly outpost of Lancashire, or so some stories have it, it was a Northern Brighton, albeit a very small one, where discreet liaisons were held by the county’s well-to-do young bucks. They and their paramours would arrive as it is still best to do, by train, the line crossing the Kent estuary from Arndale and hugging the coast making it feel almost like a sea trip, one of the finest stretches of railway in Britain.
It’s a rather elegant and relaxed sort of place, two qualities well worth having in a wedding venue, where the attractions are not those sands (don’t even think of venturing out unless accompanied by the Queen’s Guide) but the lengthy promenade and these days the wide selection of eateries, plus of course the magnificent Lakeland to the north. The fresh sea air that once brought TB sufferers to recuperate in the town will brace those about to walk up the aisle, and clear heads on the morning after the wedding night before. For your wedding breakfast the local delicacy of potted shrimps would add a nice touch here, and they are delicious, as are the cockles gathered by the sackful daily.
