Morecambe's current station dates from as recently as 1995, when the station was moved from its original seafront location to the current site, a little further inland and closer to the rest of the town. Fortunately the old station buildings still survive.

The modern station is just a terminus, with two platform edges either side of an island, and a station building at the end. The station building seen from the road to the north of the line, with a ramp leading to the platforms on the left:
