We all know the name of the BIGGEST town on the Fylde Coast – that’s right, the amazing Blackpool! Here’s your A-Z of most of the other Fylde Coast places.
‘The Fylde Coast’ is the collective name for this bit of north west coastline which includes lots of interesting towns and villages. It’s the area between the estuaries of the River Wyre in the north and River Ribble in the south. We include the rural land up to and around the motorway network, and Over Wyre.
It’s quite a big task to thoroughly populate this page, so please bear with us while we do it in phases.
A is for Ansdell
B is for Blackpool!
Big, Bright and Bold, Blackpool is by far and away the best known place here on the Fylde Coast. Slap bang between the two rivers which define our little peninsula of land, Blackpool is the nation’s favourite seaside resort.
We love it so much that we’ve created a full website dedicated to the place! Head over to the homepage of Live Blackpool and explore from there.
C is for Cleveleys
Midway between Fleetwood and Blackpool, Cleveleys is a lovely place to visit. Many people like it so much that they come to live here! There’s a beautiful seafront and beach, a thriving town centre and a great sense of community spirit.
Find out about all of this and much more from our Visit Cleveleys website. It’s one of the Visit Fylde Coast family.

We couldn’t think of a specific town or village beginning with D for our A-z of Fylde Coast places. Can you?

We’ve scoured Google maps and can’t find anything, even a small place, that begins with a J. Over to you to make suggestions for this letter please!
