Discover coastal landscapes
On your geography school trip to the Yorkshire Dales, your students will also have the opportunity to explore coastal landscapes.
The Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty has a spectacular coastline on Morecambe Bay, the largest intertidal area in the UK.
Morecambe Bay is one of just a few locations in the world where it’s possible to see a tidal bore. This is a type of tidal wave caused by the surge of the incoming tide meeting resistance from the sands and channels of the bay and can be quite spectacular!
