'Visit Fylde Coast' includes websites for individual towns and there's information about each place on each different website.
You'll find town centres in the 'About' section of the main menu.
'Local Shopping' pages are in the 'Lifestyle' section of each site
That's where you'll find individual shops themselves, the smaller local shopping areas that you'll find all over the coast, where you can take your dog, and lots more besides.
But first, come with us for a quick look around.
We'll start in Fleetwood at the north of the Fylde Coast.
There's a good indoor/outdoor general market (above). High street shops are on Lord Street which runs parallel to the coastroad. The Freeport Fleetwood Shopping Outlet is right on the main road into town. Like the rest of the coast, everything is quite close together making for a better experience - and less strain on your feet!
Next stop south on the coast is Cleveleys.
Here you'll find the main high street running at right angles to the new promenade. It's only a small high street but it's tightly packed with high street and independent stores side by side. Always busy, it's a perfect place for a leisurely afternoon out.
Head off inland and you'll find the market town of Poulton-le-Fylde.
Only about 5 miles from the coast, it's a historic market town with good shopping and well worth a visit, especially on Monday for the general weekly market.
The place everyone knows on this coast is of course Blackpool!
Come to the town centre at any time mid-week and it's no different to shopping in any UK town centre. The central area is where you'll find the major high street stores and the indoor Houndshill Centre, with the independent stores around the St John's Square area. Blackpool is an ideal centre for a good shopping trip, and certainly worth a visit.
Next stop heading south is St Annes.
Similar to Cleveleys, the high street runds inland at 90 degrees from St Annes Pier as far inland as the railway station. St Annes Road West is a wide road with gardens and attractive features, benches and seating areas. The shops are a mix of high street names and independents.
At the southern end of the Fylde Coast is Lytham.
Lytham does have some high street names but it's a great spot for independent stores in homewares, clothes and gifts - so if you're looking for something a bit different then it's a good place to come.
Then there are out-of-town centres. Two good ones are at Marton at the end of the M55 motorway with large retailers like Next, Matalan and Tesco. At Squires Gate you'll find Currys, TK Maxx, Dunelm and Morrisons.
So there you have it. A quick guide to shopping on the Fylde Coast!
