Walking or Leisure - A Day on the Fylde Coast – 21st October 2023


Why not join us on this day out on the Fylde Coast for a walk from Fairhaven Lake & Gardens through to Blackpool North Pier or a just leisurely day on the Fylde Coast.  

This is a 7.5 mile coastal walk on the flat from Fairhaven to Blackpool North Pier and should take approximately 3½ hours to complete.

There are several places along the route with toilets and refreshments.

The walk is on good paths/pavements and promenades. If you so wish you can do parts of this walk along the beach and through the sand dunes, at your own risk, but access depends on high tide times.

After the walk you will have a few hours in Blackpool at leisure to explore the sights and catch some of the illuminations.

Don’t fancy the walk, then you will have leisure time in Lytham St Annes, before travelling up to Blackpool and if you so wish a visit to Affinity Lancashire (formerly Fleetwood Freeport).

The coach will return from Blackpool early evening.

Fairhaven: Fairhaven Lake has been restored to its former glory as one of the most popular parks on the Fylde Coast. Surrounded by beautiful gardens and open green spaces, it’s where the Irish Sea meets the estuary of the River Ribble. The lake extends northwards as far as St Pauls Avenue, where you’ll find the Spitfire Memorial. This great big outdoor area has plenty of good facilities too. Enjoy traditional amusements and walks, fresh air and the beautiful coastline. Get an ice cream or hot drink from one of the little take-aways, or enjoy refreshments at one of the cafes near the lake. Plus, of course, there are public toilets!

Lytham St Annes: Just two miles from the bright lights of Blackpool, it is worlds apart in both character and atmosphere. The seaside town is nestled along a picturesque stretch of coastline lined with the well tended lawns, a boating lake and pretty parks. With an expansive sandy beach, Victorian pier and stylish independent shops, Lytham St Annes continue to remind us why we all love the British seaside so much.

Blackpool: The seaside resort is known for Blackpool Pleasure Beach, an old-school amusement park with vintage wooden roller coasters. Built in 1894, the landmark Blackpool Tower houses a circus, a glass viewing platform and the Tower Ballroom, where dancers twirl to the music of a Wurlitzer organ. Blackpool Illuminations is an annual light show along the Promenade.
