Blackpool is not the only source of interest but the surrounding towns, villages and countryside offers a wide range of activities, this is just a brief outline of what there is to see and do.
Jump on a tram outside the hotel and head north up the coast you will come to the resort of Cleveleys with its main shopping centre on Victoria Road, where some great bargains can be found. The tram route travels all the way to Fleetwood where even more shopping can be done at Freeport, an outlet centre with a range of designer names. On the seafront at Fleetwood is the Marine Hall which hosts shows, fairs and competitions. More Info>. To give you a good idea of the maritime history of Fleetwood visit the Customs House Museum which demonstrates the life of deep sea fishing and working on a trawler.
Poulton-le-Fylde has a distinct character, the old market place, the stocks, St.Chad's -the parish church in the centre of town. It has a good selection of pubs and restaurants and gained a reputation of a lively nightlife with a great atmosphere.
On the south coast of the Fylde is Lytham St.Annes, two towns in one borough. Lytham is the home of smart cafés, dining and excellent shopping while St.Annes is closer to the traditional seaside resort - safe sandy beaches, the Victorian Pier and Bandstand. Of course, what it's most famous for is its golf course - Royal Lytham & St.Annes Golf Club - one of the four clubs in town.
Travelling further inland is the town of Garstang with its aqueduct that carries the Lancaster Canal over the River Wyre. The Fylde has small villages like Great and Little Eccleston, St.Michael's and Wrea Green, they may be small but they are home to country shows and countless country pubs.
The historic city of Lancaster has many sites, the castle that overlooks the city, Williamson Park with the Ashton Memorial at the top of the hill and the theatres. Much of the city centre is paved with the two main shopping areas covered. Lancaster's coastal neighbour Morecambe is undergoing a refurbishment, highlighted by the Midland Hotel on the front and the statue of the town's famous son Eric Morecambe.
