The B5275 is a short link road to the east of Morecambe town centre.
Starting from a junction with the B5321 in the Torrisholme area of Morecambe just east of that road's meeting with the A589, it runs northward for a mile to reach the coastal suburb of Bare along the full length of the appropriately named Bare Lane. Just over halfway along its course the road crosses the Morecambe Branch Line at a level crossing adjacent to a station also called Bare Lane.
By the single-storey Regency-era Owl's Nest pub (a former lodge house) in the centre of Bare village, the B5275 bends left into Princes Crescent before ending at a T-junction on the dual-carriageway A5105 Marine Road East, which runs along the sea front. This is the present terminus but originally the B5275 turned left and continued along the coast into Morecambe, ending on the then-A589 Euston Road in the town centre. By 1932 the A589 had shifted to its present route along Broadway, taking over part of the B5275 in the process. Construction of the A5105 a few years later led to that road taking over the remainder of the B5275's coastal section, leaving just the present route from Torrisholme to Bare.
The route is minimally signposted: at its southern end the road number is displayed only to westbound traffic on the B5321 Lancaster Road (for eastbound traffic the destination "Bare" is signed from the Shrimp Inn roundabout via the connecting, and unclassified, Hall Drive); while at its northern end the road is signed from the A5105 only as "Princes Crescent Shops".
