Discover our bygone age and colourful past. Simply start with Lytham’s name, tracing its origins back to the lands known in the Domesday book as Lindun – the settlement by the river. In 1606, the Cliftons came to Lytham and for 300 years, made an indelible print on the area with their buildings, streets and gifts to the town. Should the opportunity arise, then visit Lytham Hall, one of the finest Georgian houses in the North West, which was home to the Clifton family. John Carr of York built the present hall for Thomas Clifton between 1752-64. There are a number of interesting features in the 78 acres of grounds several of them listed Grade II.
Take a trip to St Annes’ Victorian Pier first opened in 1885; it is one of the few remaining piers in Britain open 364 days a year and is a legacy of our continuing status as an original Victorian seaside resort. Discover St Annes’ marine history and our strong connection to the RNLI and ‘The Mexico’ Disaster. Visit St Annes’ Parish Church and view the St Annes Heritage Mural.
