St Annes town centre

Away from the main event on the beach and Promenade, do take time to visit the town centre of St Annes on the Sea, where you will find many shops, cafes, restaurants and the beautiful Ashton Gardens with its popular Pavilion. There’s additional parking and toilets in the town centre too, and good accessibility too. The town centre is just one hundred yards from the pier.

Make a weekend of it!

There are plenty of good quality, welcoming guest houses, holiday apartments and hotels in the area and use the accommodation section on this website where there’s plenty to chose from (always book direct for the best rates).
