Get close to nature
One of the reasons visitors are so attracted to Arnside is because of the area's flora and fauna. The village lies within the Arnside and Silverdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and there's plenty to keep walkers and birdwatchers happy.
Take a stroll along the village's seafront promenade and out onto the pier to meet some of the local winged residents and enjoy views across the bay towards Grange-over-Sands and the Lake District fells.
Arnside Knott stands above the village, a 520-foot-high area of limestone grassland and woodland. It's renowned as a great place to find butterflies and a wide variety of other insects and birds.
Another favourite with ornithologists is the RSPB's Leighton Moss nature reserve, which has the largest reed-bed in north-west England. Trowbarrow Quarry Nature Reserve, just up the road, is home to a wide variety of plants and is highly popular with rock climbers.
