Lancashire is in the North West of England and takes its name from Lancaster City.

This county ranges from Blackpool - an amazing traditional and very exciting seaside resort - up to the Forest of Bowland and is packed with activities and attractions, heritage and wonderful folk tales. Known as England's golfing coast this area offers four superb courses near Lytham St Anne's. The beaches in the area are varied but mainly sandy and most offer safe swimming and watersports.

Coastal features include Lytham Windmill, the beautiful old town of Heysham and the three lighthouses at Fleetwood but apart from those the area is perfect for nature lovers with RSPB reserves, Ribble Coast and Wetlands that are home to wildlife and made up of mudflats, sand dunes and marshes. There's also a wonderful walk on the 140 mile long coastal path that takes you to Cumbria!

There are many seaside towns here and each has varied accommodation, harbours and great fish and chip shops! Lytham St Annes is an old town dating back to Victorian times with gardens right down to the sea, a Victorian Pier and Promenade, Lytham Green Windmill and A grandiose Hall!

Fleetwood is popular with its maritime heritage and busy harbour. Fleetwood Freeport Villages offers shopping galore on the marina and there's a five mile promenade at Morecambe where you can drink in the breathtaking views across the bay.
