Lytham, St Annes-on-Sea and Fylde Villages

Unspoilt, elegant, tranquil, stunning. Close your eyes and picture a perfect beach with 5 miles of glimmering sands; take a deep breath and imagine the freshness of salty sea air and listen to the laughter of family and friends. An ideal location for filming whatever time of day, with beautiful sunsets dipping over the Irish Sea.

Coastal Contrasts:

Fresh sea air, championship links golf courses, seaside retreats which retain a wonderful old-fashioned charm, coastal nature reserves with some of the best birdwatching in Britain and unbeatable sunsets – the Fylde coast is just the place to recharge your batteries.

Explore the traditional coastal village of Lytham, steeped in history which is told within its famous landmark windmill on the green, along with Lytham Hall which is one of the finest Georgian houses in the North West of England. Lytham Hall has Grade One listed status and its parkland is also registered with English Heritage. The present hall was built for Thomas Clifton, by John Carr of York between 1752-64.

Neighbouring St Annes-on-Sea has also retained its serene charm, the Victorian Pier a wonderful legacy of its preserved heritage, built in 1885. For a nice dose of nostalgia, take a stroll along the promenade, past the bandstand and promenade gardens, overlooking the traditional donkey rides on the beach – just like the good old days!
