On each of our individual sites you can find out about the town centres along the Fylde Coast - you'll find them in 'About' off the main menu.
When it comes down to actual shopping, on each site under 'Lifestyle' you'll find pages about everything to do with shopping. That's individual shops themselves, about 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.
Starting in Fleetwood at the north, you'll find a good indoor/outdoor general market, high street shops on Lord Street which runs parallel to the coastroad, and the Fleetwood Freeport Shopping Outlet 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 new 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 from St Annes Pier at 90 degrees, heading back as far 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, plus their own independent and very good department store, JR Taylor.
It's next door neighbour at the southern end of the Fylde Coast is Lytham, where you'll find another excellent independent department store, Stringers. 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 with the large retailers like Next, Matalan and the such like, at Squires Gate and the end of the M55.
So there you have it. A quick guide to shopping on the Fylde Coast!
