The Fylde Coast is roughly a 13 mile (20-kilometre) square shaped peninsula, bounded by Morecambe Bay to the north, the Ribble estuary to the south, the Irish Sea to the west, and the Bowland hills to the east. The eastern boundary is approximately the location of the M6 motorway.
The west coast is almost entirely urban, consisting of the towns of Fleetwood, Cleveleys, Blackpool and Lytham St Annes, with the villages of Wrea Green, Poulton-le-Fylde and Kirkham not far inland.
Lancaster’s past comes to life through its castle and museums, where you can explore the history of the city – from its grim stories of witches and murderers to its rich industrial and cultural history.
Stroll through the pedestrianised city centre, browsing in boutique shops and high street stores, and stop off for coffee and cakes at one of the popular coffee shops or out-of-the-way cafés.
Lancaster’s nightlife buzzes with live music, contemporary theatre and film, and delicious food and drink.

No visit to Blackpool is complete without a trip to The Blackpool Tower! Enjoy the views from the top of the Tower, visit the Tower Ballroom, the Tower Dungeon and the Tower Circus.
A short stroll down the Promenade brings you to SEA LIFE and Madame Tussauds. Both perfect for a morning or afternoon family trip.
The Forest of Bowland is a true jewel of the English landscape.
Proud possessor of the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status, this stunning part of the country offers you inspiring landscapes 24 hours a day, 360 days a year.
Whether you’re out for a lazy afternoon drive, a stroll through heather-clad moorland, or powering up a muddy cycle track, this magical setting is the ideal place for a green getaway.
Just three miles from the bright lights of Blackpool, the towns of Lytham and St Annes are worlds apart in both character and atmosphere.
The rolling sand dunes from Starr Gate to St Annes and the Ribble Estuary adjacent to Lytham make a safe haven for more than 250,000 migrating birds that flock here in winter.
St Annes boasts a beautifully restored Victorian Pier, promenade with views across to North Wales, multi award winning beach huts, a wide open sandy beach, plenty of places to eat and stay and wonderful seaside charm.
Within an hours drive to the north is the glorious Lake District National Park, the ideal location for walking, eating and shopping and of course taking in the spectacular views of the mountains and lakes.
The collection of lakes and tarns into a relatively small area of the country means breath taking scenery with every bend in the road.
With more than 3,500 kilometres of rights of way, you can walk, cycle and ride around the beautiful Lake District countryside to your heart’s content. And of course you can also get on the water on the lakes and coastline.
