The town of Lytham lies against the estuary of the River Ribble where it turns inland, at the bottom of the north west Fylde Coast in the borough of Fylde - not far from the Victorian town of St Annes.
Lytham itself is a lovely town, perfect for families.
Lytham town centre is reasonably compact and easy to use.
The main shopping street runs parallel to the waterfront with side streets off it.
It offers a really good range of shopping, with plenty of good quality independent stores along with smaller branches of familiar high street names.
There are benches at Clifton Square and plenty of pavement cafes where you can sit and enjoy the sunshine and watch people passing.
The waterfront at Lytham is a wide grassy area known as Lytham Green - a perfect spot to enjoy a lovely walk.
It's here where you'll find the beautiful Lytham windmill - which, along with the lifeboat house is a small museum that's open seasonally.
No visit to Lytham is complete of course without a visit to Lytham Hall.
A beautiful, listed building standing in glorious parkland, you can enjoy looking round the Hall itself, a stroll in the grounds, and an impressive annual events programme.
Heading north, Lytham is only a few short miles from St Annes and beyond that Blackpool.
There's a beautiful seafront to explore, with miles of golden sand and plenty of space for walking.
