The whole of the Fylde Coast is a fabulous place to enjoy, and great for an exploration base too!
Whether you are lucky enough to live here, are close enough to enjoy frequent day trips, or you are heading here for your next holiday, there’s plenty to see and do here on the Fylde Coast, and lots to explore in the surrounding areas too.
Enjoy the bright lights and razzamataz of Blackpool, the family friendly Cleveleys and Fleetwood, the refinement of Lytham and St Annes, or the rural landscape of Poulton-le-Fylde and further afield.
The coast is well served by main roads and motorways so you can travel in, out and around relatively easily, and of course there is an excellent public transport system along the edge of the coast, in the form of buses and the brand new modern trams which between them provide an efficient service from end to end.
