Lytham St Anne's is a quiet town very near Blackpool. The area is two small towns, Lytham and St Anne's; however, over the years the boundaries between the two have become very blurred and indistinct and the town is now known collectively as Lytham St Anne's.   The area boasts some 5 miles of splendid sandy beaches and acres of picturesque countryside and parks.

The Fylde coast, on which Lytham stands, is a wonderful area for bird watching with up to 270,00 migrating sea birds and waders coming every year to the Ribble Estuary.    This area is one of the most important sites in the country and attracts bird watchers from far and wide, the RSPB Discovery Centre at Fairhaven Lake enables visitors to learn more about the wildlife of the estuary before setting out.

The area also has some very good golf courses including The Royal Lytham St Anne's which hosted the Open Championships in 2012 Royal Lytham golf course

Just a short way off is Blackpool, well known as a seaside resort of some distinction. Blackpool has one of the country's largest pleasure parks, Blackpool Pleasure Beach. It is also famous for the Blackpool tower, opened in 1894 and inspired by the Eiffel Tower. The Tower is 158m (518ft 9 inches) tall and houses not only the famous Tower Circus but also the impressive Tower Ballroom amongst many other attractions. If you wish you can try the "Walk of Faith". This is a glass floor at the very top of the Tower. The glass is 2" thick and weighs half a ton but walking over it takes nerve! Go to The Blackpool Tower

Event operated under the aegis of A STACK SQUARES
