    Carnforth Station and Visitor Centre 4 more images

    by spidermiss Updated Mar 4, 2012

    The visitor centre has a museum, shop and the famous Brief Encounter Refreshment Room. I had a quick look round the museum which had interesting artifacts and exhibits from Carnforth's proud railway history. There is an exhibition on the Brief Encounter movie. My highlight was to enjoy drinks at the famous Refreshment Room where some of the filming took place.

    Do look out for the station's famous clock which was featured in the movie and is part of Carnforth's past and present.

    The Visitor Centre and Refreshment Room are opened daily until 10.00am-4.00pm. Please check opening times over Public Holidays.

    Chill is a nice cafe on Morecambe sea front, near the Stone Jetty. It offers a huge choice of smoothies and juices as well as good coffee, etc. The cakes and buns are homemade, and the proprietor's mother will also bake you a special cake on request!
    Nice furnishing, with a quiet area - with "Bookcrossing" books. Chill also does Jazz and Blues nights that are meant to be very good. A great place to hang out and watch the rain sweep in over Morecambe Bay!

    Favorite Dish: Any of the cakes and buns.

    This is a little cafe in the back street of Carnforth near Booth's supermarket. The astonishing thing is that it's run by an Austrian woman, so the cakes and pastries are to die for! - especially the apple strudel. The full breakfast and the goulash soup are also very good.
    The decor is very Austrian - cable cars strung across the ceirling and any number of cuckoo clocks - it's quite deafening when the hours strike!

    Favorite Dish: Apple strudel, Austrian cheesecake.

    Special Winter Offer to Metrocard/pass holders

    by spidermiss Written Mar 4, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    West Yorkshire Metro Travel Authority was offering MetroCard and Metro Pass holders an opportunity to travel on the Leeds-Settle-Carlisle or on the Leeds-Lancaster-Morecombe railway lines for 9.00 gbp day return. This is considered very good value for money because it can cost an average of 25-30 gbp to travel to Carlisle, Lancaster or Morecombe for the day.

    I decided to take advantage of the offer twice in 2012. Firstly, I decided at the last minute (February 2012) to go up to Carnforth to visit the Station's Visitors Centre and Secondly (March 2012) to Lancaster where I had a great day exploring the historic city.

    I hope to visit other places and if Metro holds this offer next year.
