This little sea side town, is probably best known for it's famous golf course, Royal and Ancient Lytham St Anne's.
It has a lovely Victorian pier, and well laid out gardens along the sea front. An old train is used as a cafe and shop's. For the children there's an area with a playground, trampolines, dodgem boats and a little train that takes you for a trip around the crazy golf course.
The sand is muddy in places, but you can loose yourself in the sand dunes north of the beautiful Victorian pier.
Les Dawson was much loved comedian in the UK, who died at the age of 62, he lived and loved St Ann's,and in the little Peace garden next to the Pier you will found a statue of himself.
Lytham is a very quiet seaside resort, it's just south of Blackpool, and 20 miles north of Preston. It doesn't really have a beach, because it's on the mouth of the Ribble estuary, but, it does have "Lytham Green" a long stretch of green grass to play ball, sunbathe or picnic on.
This is a gentle laid back place away from the hustle and bustle of Blackpool, it is somewhere to go and relax, were children can fly kites and kick a football, it's an inexpensive day out.
The town centre is small but you will find lots of good places to eat and drink.
You can walk along the sea front for miles, and onto the next resort of Fairhaven. It is flat and suitable for wheelchair users and people with mobility problems. There are plenty of seats along the way for you to sit on and rest those tired leg's.
Visit the Windmill ,which is on the green, open to the public and run by Lytham heritage.
Go see the Lowther gardens and Pavilion, watch people playing balls, or maybe take in a show.
Fairhaven Lake is just a short way up the coast from Lytham, you will find just a little more to do here. The lake is quite small and boats can be hired to sail on it. There is a walk way all around the lake with picnic tables, a play ground, skate board park, tennis, crown green bowling, a cafe and a little shop.
You are asked not to feed the ducks and swans on the lake.
There is a slop down to the lake from the road, if you have a wheelchair, be careful as it is a little steep and you need to navigate your way round as not all places are accessible.
- Pros:Laid back, quiet resorts.
We had a mini VT meet here to welcome wise23girl from Australia. The restaurant is large but well sectioned off. There's... more travel advice
Fairhaven Lake is a lovely place to stroll round and picnic. It has boats for hire, their speed is governed so there is... more travel advice
