Located in Lancashire, Thorton-Cleveleys is known for its stunning 11-mile stretch of coastline, culminating in the award-winning Cleveleys beach and promenade. It’s a great area to enjoy a seaside stroll, dine out at some waterfront restaurants and see some local art on the Mythic Coast Artwork Trail. Visit the neighbouring Jubilee Gardens or take the family down to the beach for some fun in the sun (and sand!). Thornton-Cleveleys is ideal for nature-lovers. Not only are there plenty of walks to discover, but the area is also a haven for rare birds and wildlife. On the other side of the town, you’ll find the Wyre Estuary Country Park, a Green Flag Country Park fitted with wheelchair access. Aside from the pretty views, there are also family picnic spots and regular events here all year round.
Back in town, you’ll also be close to Marsh Mill, Europe’s tallest windmill, built in 1794. It’s a fascinating day out where you can take a tour through the mill and learn all about its history. Marsh Mill Village is a quaint shopping area with a popular farmers market every second Sunday of the month, as well as a few craft shops, cafes, a pub and a fine dining restaurant.
Thornton-Cleveleys is easily accessible, with regular Blackpool tram services and road access to the M6/Junction 32 via the A6 Garstang Road. Buses run between Cleveleys Park to Blackpool town centre, as well as Morecambe, Preston, Poulton-le-Fylde and Lytham.
