There are four reknowned courses in this area of Lancashire, located around Lytham and St Annes. Other places to visit in Lancashire include Cleveley with it's newly developed seafront.

Lancashire coastal features include Lytham Windmill, Glasson Dock with it's swing bridge and sea lock, the three lighthouses at Fleetwood, and the picturesque old town of Heysham.

For walkers there is Lancashire's Coastal Path, 'The Coastal Way' which is 140 miles long following the Lancashire coastline from Merseyside round to Cumbria.

Nature lovers can visit a number of important RSPB Reserves and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Ribble Coast and Wetlands is an important location for wildlife. It includes saltmarshes, mudflats and sand dunes. At the RSPB Ribble discovery centre, there are coastal paths and hides, and it is an important winter refuge for geese, godwits, and other birds. In spring it provides nesting opportunities for birds such as lapwings and redshanks.
