Walking at St Annes

If you enjoy walking, at St Annes you'll find flat, wide and open scenery along the seafront, with a green landscape as you travel inland.

Pull on your walking boots and enjoy the great outdoors!

Whether you are an experienced walker, or not up to much more than a stroll, there must be few places better than St Annes in which to enjoy this age-old and completely free pastime.

The landscape is flat, the promenade is safe, and the views are spectacular, so pull on your comfy shoes, wrap up to suit the weather, and get walking!

If you want to amble at a slow pace, sit and chat to random strangers, then the promenade pathway in the area of the seafront gardens is your thing. If you prefer peace and solitude and a more challenging walk, then why not try the beach – which comes with a free leg muscle workout as you tramp the sands!

For experienced and keen walkers, you can pick up the coastal Lancashire Way footpath at St Annes. It starts at Freckleton, which is just slightly inland from Lytham on the banks of the Ribble Estuary, and runs along the Lytham seafront right along the Fylde Coast across the River Wyre and beyond, to Silverdale, just north of Carnforth. If the entire 67.4 mile route is just a bit too much, according to Google if you travel the coast paths from West Beach at Lytham to Dock Street at Fleetwood that will take you just a little over 17 miles.

Head a little inland and the beauty of Ashton Gardens is all yours to enjoy, for a walk through its paths and planting. If you fancy a slope, then you could head up towards the golf course. If it's a 'hill' that you're looking for, then the sand dunes approaching Squires Gate are your best bet - complete with a brilliant view and close proximity to the planes landing at the airport!

The beauty of walking is that it’s free, you see all kinds of things on your way, it lifts your spirits and improves your health – start with a little and often and build up your stamina!
