Winding its way through Galgate village is one of the only coastal waterways in the UK, the charming Lancaster canal. This 41 mile stretch of water, which twists and turns from Preston to Kendal, lends itself to beautiful riverside walks, long bike rides and bird watching. Galgate’s charming marina, with moorings for over 120 boats, is a perfect spot to enjoy all these pursuits, and the sights and sounds of narrow boats coming and going.
Galgate is also a great base to explore Lancashire’s impressive countryside and stunning coastline. Morecambe Bay is less than 20 minutes from the development and stretches from the south west coast of Cumbria to Fleetwood – taking in coastal towns such as Grange Over Sands, Morecambe and Heysham.
The Bay is one of the best places in the UK for high adrenalin outdoor activities from sailing, to powered paragliding, parachuting, windsurfing, mountain biking and kite-surfing. The headlands of Morecambe Bay offer spectacular, seascape views; the adventurous can experience a guided walk across the sands, taking in the wide-open vistas across the tidal sand and mud flats towards the Bowland Fells and the Lake District.
Galgate is also less than 20 miles from both Preston and Lancaster which allows those that like to dip into city life the choice of two vibrant cities.
