Seaside Resorts in Lancashire By John L Jones

Lancashire County is in the north-west of England and has stretches of sandy beaches. This is one of the most popular seaside resorts in Britain, and it also forms a beautiful contrast with the eastern side of the county which has amazing landscapes and picturesque countryside.

Lytham St Annes is the perfect place to go for a seaside vacation when you are looking for calm and peaceful environment. It has world renowned golf courses that even host some championship tournaments. It also has a quaint windmill and a great promenade to walk on. If you are visiting in May, you can even watch the British Sand Yacht Championships that take place here.

Blackpool is another seaside resort that is extremely popular with tourists due to its Blackpool Sea Life Centre and Blackpool Tower. The resort site has an endless sandy beach and other attractions like walks to Anchorsholme in the north. Stanley Park, with its formal gardens also has a lake for boating along with pretty fountains. If you are looking for culture, visit Grundy Art Street in Queen Street.

Another seaside resort in Lancashire County is Morecambe which has a gorgeous bay which offers water sports as well as other forms of fun. It is more than just a tourist spot. Morecambe is also a wildlife site and has many bird species as well as marine life creatures. It is also one of the largest bays in Britain, second only to the Wash.

The best time to visit Lancashire for some seaside enjoyment is in summer months, specifically from May to July when the weather is better and the sun is out. At this time, you can enjoy the many water sports available and truly enjoy the seaside. Since Lancashire is very popular among tourists, it is a good idea to get your booking in advance so that you can be sure to get cheap accommodations in good places.

If you get bored on the beach, you can also see other things in this beautiful county. You should visit Lancashire Castle which is open to tourists. It has a priory next to it that dates back to Saxon times. Lancashire City Museum will show you the history of the area.

The Bowland Forest and Pendle Hill are a part of the "Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty," and they truly live up to their name with their charming contours, valleys, quaint towns, and villages. While here, you can walk around and explore the area, or hire a bike and view even more of the countryside. The county has many natural parks so you can really enjoy your time here if you are nature enthusiast.

If you are headed to Lancashire County for a seaside vacation make sure you plan this beforehand, so you can plan out a way to really see this beautiful county and do more than just spend time on the beach. However, since the beaches are so beautiful no one can blame you if you head no further inland than the hotel.
