A guide to living in Fleetwood
Fleetwood is a historic coastal town which was once a thriving fishing port. There’s plenty to see and do here, both in the town itself and in the nearby traditional seaside resorts of Blackpool and Morecambe.
For those who love the great outdoors, there are miles of unspoilt beaches and coastal walks to explore, as well as the beautiful grade II listed Memorial Parks and Gardens, which recently received a £2.4m investment from the Heritage and Big Lottery funds.
Families with young children will find plenty to see and do, including Farmer Parr’s Animal World and Fleetwood museum, a maritime and local history museum. Further afield there’s the Sandcastle water slide park and of course the much-loved family favourite, Blackpool Pleasure Beach.
For shopaholics, Fleetwood has lots to offer. The main shopping street is Lord Street, and just off here you will find the famous market. Coach trips run from miles around to visit Fleetwood Market, where you can find indoor and outdoor stalls selling just about anything you can think of, all at bargain prices. And if that’s not enough, just outside Fleetwood you will find the Freeport shopping village, with plenty of free parking and many favourite high street brands.
Fleetwood also boasts a rich history and some fascinating buildings, including Pharo’s Lighthouse, a 93-foot limestone lighthouse designed by the well-known local architect Decimus Burton in 1839.
Foodies will love Fleetwood, with plenty to choose from, ranging from traditional family fish and chip restaurants to gastropubs and fine dining in the chic North Euston Hotel. And of course, there are lots of fabulous ingredients to be found for the budding bon viveur at Fleetwood Market.
