Imagine yourself on the perfect sandy beach with beautiful blue sea, wide open golden sands backed by dunes; take a deep breath and imagine the freshness of salty sea air and listen to the laughter of your family and friends. St Annes-on-the-Sea’s town centre and the beautiful Ashton Gardens have been regenerated over recent years to offer a charming experience, blending heritage with modern living.

Take a stroll along the promenade in St Annes, past the bandstand and wonderful Promenade Gardens and you’ll find the historic Victorian Pier, an important landmark reflecting the town’s heritage, entertaining curious young minds and the young at heart with its endless amusements. Adjacent to the pier you’ll find the Peace and Happiness Garden with a wonderful statue of entertainer Les Dawson, who lived locally and enjoyed the stunning coastal views.
Relax for a moment and take in the panoramic views of the Ribble Estuary and the Irish Sea over to North Wales, an important habitat for birds and wildlife. For traditional seaside fun enjoy a round of mini golf, make sandcastles, fly a kite, enjoy an ice cream, have a donkey ride, or even book a day at a multi award winning Beach Hut.
