Live here or visit,
we love it!

Victorian seaside St Annes, where miles of wide golden beach are backed by dramatic sand dunes and the wide public gardens and spaces of the central promenade with its ponds, paths and children’s attractions. Visit the town centre with pavement cafes and visiting farmers markets, and the beautiful nearby Ashton Gardens. Look around St Annes with this website for residents and visitors, about the place and the people who live here.
