The Royal is proud to support the Way of the Roses cycle route – one of Britain’s best ‘coast-to-coast’ routes.

For 170 miles between Morecambe and Bridlington, this highly popular route passes through historic cities York and Lancaster, and lesser known gems such as Settle, Pateley Bridge and Ripon. From coast to coast, you’ll cycle across beautiful, varied landscape including the Lune Valley, Yorkshire Dales, Nidderdale and the Yorkshire Wolds and use traffic-free paths, on-road cycle lanes, country lanes and quieter roads. It’s a challenge but rewarding cycling adventure for all.

The Royal is an ideal place to stay before embarking on the route. Located in the heart of Morecambe, our hotel rooms are en-suite with a comfortable double bed, TV and some rooms have excellent views over Morecambe Bay. Food is available throughout the day, all freshly prepared and cooked in house by our head chef.

We have unlimited secure storage for cycles, small or large groups can be accommodated in comfort. Competitive rates available but please contact the hotel directly on 01524 956579 for best deals.
