Thornton-Cleveleys Introduction

Perched on the picturesque Lancashire coast, around 5 miles north of bustling Blackpool, Thornton-Cleveleys operates at a much gentler pace than its brash neighbour but is nevertheless a beguiling seaside destination in its own right. The big draw is Rossall Beach, an expansive stretch of sand and shingle set along the churning Irish Sea. Bustling Cleveleys town centre is home to independent shops, friendly pubs and an eclectic selection of tempting restaurants. And the skyline of quaint neighbouring village of Thornton is dominated by a lovingly restored 18th-century lighthouse.
