Day one:

Lancashire is home to 137 miles of varied and contrasting coastline, running from Morecambe Bay in the North to Lytham at the mouth of the Ribble Estuary. Each coastal stop offers something different to inspire and enthral. Head along the coast and venture further inland for the perfect short break.

Lancashire’s northern coastline is a treasure trove of scenic landscapes and wilderness. Take a guided walk across Morecambe Bay, with wide-open vistas across tidal sand and mud flats towards the Lake District and Bowland Fells, or return in the evening to marvel at one of the most stunning sunsets in the UK.

Heading slightly further inland is the city of Lancaster. Famed for its castle, and stunning views from Williamson Park, it is also home to quirky boutiques, independent galleries and a twice-weekly Charter Market.

Just outside of Lancaster, you will find the Forest of Bowland, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, a unique and captivating part of the countryside. Expanses of sky above dramatic sweeps of open moorland, gentle and tidy lowlands, criss-crossed with dry stone walls and dotted with picturesque farms and villages, all waiting to be explored.

Finish the day in the beautiful Ribble Valley, where you will find delicious local food and drink and warm hospitality. From Michelin fine dining to locally sourced hearty pub meals, you’ll find something for every taste here.

Day two:

Heading back further down the coast to enjoy the beautiful central coastline of Fleetwood and Cleveleys. You’ll find an array of things to do from museums to coffee shops, markets to artwork trails.

Make your way slightly inland and stop for lunch in the pretty village of Thornton, where you will find the historic Marsh Mill Windmill home to Twelve restaurant. Alternatively travel to the market town of Garstang, perfect for lazy picnics, teashop treats and traditional pub lunches.

The perfect place to while away an afternoon, St Annes on Sea is a quaint seaside town with a beautiful Victorian pier, beach huts, wide open sandy beach and all your seaside favourites. Enjoy an ice cream, stroll the promenade or admire the views from the pier.

Down the road you will find Lytham, boasting beautiful scenery, historic landmarks and bustling coffee shops. Here you can wind down with a lovely meal and drinks, walk the stunning Lytham green breathing in the fresh sea air and watch the sun set.
