Lytham Things to Do

  • A REAL (AND CHEAP) BOOKSTORE !

    Get here while you still can! Windmill Bookshop is a real second-hand bookshop. They don’t sell specialty coffees, have over-priced CD’s or stupid music playing in the background. This is a real reader’s bookshop. Cheap as chips and an absolute mountain of titles to dig through. Want to get children hooked on books? Need a guidebook? Romantic...

Lytham Restaurants

  • Great Value

    We had a mini VT meet here to welcome wise23girl from Australia.The restaurant is large but well sectioned off. There's plenty of seating outside if you're lucky enough to have a fine day ! The staff are friendly and helpful, they took photos of the group and put up with our ribbing.Visited again March 2011, still good value. I had the Carvery,...

  • Eat on the train

    This little old train in St Ann's, is a novel way of eating. The food is basic and good value, although I did find it a little stuffy and smelly inside. They have salads, typical English fish "n" chips, roast meat and veg, tea, coffee and cold drinks. Plus a souvenirs shop.

  • Enjoying a Feast in a Windmill

    Just fancy having lunch in a windmill. This windmill built around 1778 is the Fyldes tallest and oldest. The name Clifton is mentioned in the history and as my grandfather and his father before him worked as gamekeepers for the Cliftons of Lytham Hall my interest was aroused. My English cousin always finds a new place for us to eat when I visit. We...

Lytham Off The Beaten Path

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My cousin has long wanted to visit this beautiful church . And after enjoying a meal at "The Windmill" nearby we went for a discovery walk to the church...ST John The Evangelist. We did not have to scamper past the cattle grazing in the field but found another route through an old iron gate.

    But do not worry there is a proper driveway. And a sign. We just came from the wrong side.

    We met a volunteer cleaner who told us about the history of the Church in particular about a font that dated back to pre Roman times.( her husband had been a church warden but I think she is now a widow). Unfortunately there is no inscription. The ancient piece was at one time an altar but church people ,frightened of the pagan background in its history, had it made into a font.

    The church is in Salwick ,Clifton, Preston, and you could phone the Vicar for directions or just find the Windmill Pub. Need a car. Usually unlocked.

    Favorite thing: Lytham,
    You can park on the road side, on the Green ,which is pay and display, or Lowther gardens, but space is limited. Disabled can park for free but, in the DESIGNATED areas only.

    Fairhaven,
    There is plenty of parking spaces along the road and round the lake.

    St Anns.
    Mostley pay and display as with Lytham disabled parking is free in the disabled bay's, BUT be careful some car parks are privately own and disabled drivers have to pay.If you park at the Brewers Fare Pub next to the cinema,it will cosy you ?1 for the day,also if you eat in the pub,show your ticket and get ? £1 off your meal !!!!!

    Fondest memory: The 3 resorts are small and if you are feeling active, you can walk along the sea front from,Lytham through to Fairhaven.

    Robs new scooter.
