Thornton, Cleveleys

Located just 4 miles north of the bright lights of Blackpool is the town of Cleveleys. The beach front here is a vast expanse of sea and sand, backed by a promenade and the Jubilee Gardens all of which have benefited from a recent large scale renovation. Whilst traditional activities such as building sand castles, flying kites and promenading are as popular as ever there are now art installations and a new focus on the coast’s abundant wildlife.

Between Blackpool and Fleetwood, this lovely village has a bustling high street filled with shops, cafe’s, bars and even a KFC and Subway to prove its modernity.

Loved by so many seniors who visit over decades and then relocated to retire here there is almost no crime in this area and you are never short of someone to enjoy a chat and a coffee with, especially along the fine beach towards jubilee gardens and new cinema complex.
