Live here or visit,
we love it!

The Fylde Coast is the north west bit of seaside between the rivers Ribble and Wyre, with Blackpool in the centre, Fleetwood in the north and Lytham to the south. There really is something here for everyone, whether you’re looking for bright lights or tranquillity or a bit of both! In these 7 linked websites you can find out about each individual place, what’s on and more, whether you’re visiting or lucky enough to live here.
