St Annes Town Centre

St Annes has been a popular shopping centre for over a century, and the reason for it’s popularity is clear to see today.

It's a quite compact town, centred around St Annes Road West which is the wide main street that runs at 90 degrees to the A584/Clifton Drive which is the main road from Blackpool and Lytham.

St Annes Road West is lined on both sides with gardens and is home to the St Annes In Bloom beds and planters, with plenty of space for the shelters, benches and seating areas which were added in recent years. The public spaces create a back drop to the shops along this main street, with plenty of pavement cafes and places to have a break and a breather in your shopping!

In front of the shops you'll find Pay and Display parking bays, with additional free on-street spaces along the accompanying side roads, and an NCP car park behind the JR Taylor department store.

Go round the back of JR Taylor and you will also see a Sainsbury's supermarket straight in front of you, where there is parking for store customers.

Head straight along St Annes Road West and it gives way to The Crescent where the shops continue as the road rises above the railway line, and in fact you can see the station below you. Against the railway station you'll also find Danfo public toilets (20p a go!)

Parallel to St Annes Road West is the adjacent Back St Annes Rd West, and you can get to it through any one of a number of interlinked side streets - each of which is lined with independent shops.

St Annes is a good centre and offers pretty much everything for the modern day shopper.

Attracting visitors and holiday makers alongside the residents of the Fylde Coast, St Annes has national high street names including Sainsburys, WH Smith, M&Co, alongside a good variety of local independents.  JR Taylor is an independent department store, and there are clothes retailers, gifts and food.

As you might expect in a modern and well provided town centre, there are plenty of cafes, bars and restaurants, plus places to sit a while and catch your breath along both sides of the main street which is lined with attractive landscaping, seating and gardens.
