While Blackpool is a fantastic town to visit, variety is the spice of life. The west coast of England is home to several other towns near Blackpool, each offering something different.

Morecambe

south1Morecambe Bay, famed for its glittering sands and stunning sunsets is a popular place to visit. It’s home to several hotels and B&Bs of differing quality.

  • If you’re planning a hotel stay, check out the “Morecambe Hotel”. While the name isn’t the most original, it does offer something for everyone. It’s fairly well priced, though there are cheaper options. A stylish bar and restaurant are on site and the food is freshly prepared to a high standard. The rooms are comfortable and rich with features. It’s in a good, central location and there’s a kids playground to keep the little ones happy.
  • The “Sea Lynn guest house” is a great B&B. Offering modern, stylish ensuite rooms at a fair price and a fresh, locally sourced cooked breakfast, you can’t go wrong. All are welcome and the owners and staff are extremely helpful and friendly, without being overbearing.

Fleetwood

This beautiful, traditional Victorian seaside town has recently undergone a regeneration. You will find traditional shops, buzzing markets and a classic promenade with great views. It’s an excellent place to visit for families, couples or solo travellers alike.

  • The “North Euston Hotel” is in a fantastic location with rooms overlooking the bay. While being an old building, the rooms are comfortable, clean and stylish, some with sea views. They have their own bar and restaurant and serve a variety of drinks, including real ales, and the food is of good quality. There are special events throughout the year, including murder mystery evenings and ballroom dancing.
  • While not strictly in Fleetwood, the “Bourne Arms” is a pub B&B a short boat ride away in Knott end. The rooms are modern, with views over the bay and into the Lake District. Breakfast is good and the pub and restaurant downstairs offers excellent food and drink.
