Called Lancashire's 'Coastal Gem', Lytham is characterised by its picturesque windmill on the expansive Lytham Green, with views across the estuary to Southport, and its numerous quaint tea shops. Traditionally a small fishing town, Lytham has grown into a stylish destination for those wishing to escape cities but unwilling to give up up- market restaurants, cafes and bars.
Many visitors spend their time presusing the numerous boutique shops, strolling on the green, or visiting Lytham Hall, Lytham's iconic Georgian mansion house.
Lytham Hall is the finest Georgian house in Lancashire. It was once the ancestral home of the colourful Clifton Family, spanning over four centuries. It is a Grade I listed building, so is therefore of significant local and national interest. The site and its 80 acres of parkland are of great archaeological interest dating back to the 12th century when it was home to a priory of Benedictine monks. Sir Cuthbert Clifton built a Jacobean Manor House on this site in 1606. Much of the Jacobean building still exists. In 1752 Thomas Clifton commissioned John Carr of York to build the fine palladian house which we see today.
With its restaurants, cafes and bars, Lytham Square is the centre of activity in Lytham. The square has a large central piazza with seating benches and is surrounded by all our favourite restaurants. From Bosco for authentic Italian, Pizza Express for pizza, Spago for Mediterrean seafood and Capri for cocktails, you can spend you entire stay in Lytham just in the piazza!
There is a great pub, The Deacon, an art gallery, clothes shop and regular events such as farmers market (Last Thursday of the month) and the lights switch on at Christmas.
This amazing event is located on Lytham Green, approximately 30 seconds walk from Lobster Cottage! Over the years we have hosted Tom Jones, Rod Stewart, Kylie Minogue, George Ezra, Michael Ball and Katherine Jenkins.
