Recent recognition by national media 29th October 2007: Times Online published its top ten seaside towns, with Grange coming second to Douglas, Isle of Man, and beating such well known resorts as Llandudno (3rd), Scarborough (5th), Southport (6th) and Torquay (8th). It was described as the perfect old fashioned resort, full of life and character. Traditional in its own way, just how you remembered life to be like when you were growing up. Not as much sand these days, but showing lots of quiet Cumbrian class.
More recently, in Spring 2008, this Victorian/Edwardian resort was placed fifth in Coast Magazine's survey of Britain's Best Coastal Towns. The survey looked at many aspects of life in the towns it examined, giving it a 1st for employment and 3rd for low crime levels. The town is noted for its relaxed, friendly atmosphere, its mild climate, ornamental gardens, traffic-free promenade overlooking the scenically delightful extremities of Morecambe Bay, and several award-winning shops and tourism attractions. Its famous small railway station was recently named the best in Europe, and l'Enclume restaurant at the picturesque neighbouring village of Cartmel came 13th in a recent listing of Britain's top 50 culinary venues: one of the many choice places to eat in South Lakeland.
