St Annes

Things to do in St Anne's

St Anne’s Square is a 10-minute walk from The Chymes Holiday Flats! You will find everything there, a cute little village square with the essentials (Tesco, M&S, Sainsbury's, Boots, and more!) AND lots of restaurants, cafes, bars, and pubs (List of our personal favourites below). The best part is that many have outdoor heated seating, and the air is fresh and crisp!

Another draw to St Anne’s is the rock garden, it's picturesque, and a lovely area to walk around, right on the promenade. Next to it is an outdoor mini-golf green! Which is so fun and in a convenient location! Also, keep in mind, there are Beach Huts and St Anne’s Pier to check out too!

Fairhaven Lake is a beautiful saltwater lake right on the coast. On one side there is the lake, which is surrounded by greenery, then on the other, there’s the beach! There’s so much to do there, for example, you can hire a motorboat, canoe, or rowing boat, and play in the skate park, flat green bowling, tennis and basketball courts!

There’s a cafe right there and a few more surrounding the area, an RSPB discovery centre, and a park. We all go there for walks as there are trails to follow and honestly the views are stunning no matter the time or weather. There are many areas and space for a picnic, lots of geese, ducks, and swans about! Whether you’re alone, with your partner or kids you will love it here! 

Golfing in Lytham St Anne’s – We have been very lucky to have had some famous tournaments and golfers play in this town! There are lots of great golf clubs across Lytham St. Anne’s, for example, the Royal Lytham & St Anne’s Club is one of the courses in the Open Championship rotation and the Women's British Open has also played on the course five times!

Of course, we can't forget the beautiful sandy beach that stretches for miles! 


Just a 15-minute drive from Lytham St Anne’s, here you will find the famous Pleasure Beach, Sandcastle Waterpark, and Blackpool Tower to name a few! Get fresh doughnuts on the promenade and be sure to stop and have the BEST homemade ice cream from Notarianni’s.

Other popular attractions include:

  • Sealife Centre
  • Blackpool Dungeons
  • Madame Tussauds
  • North, Central and South Pier
  • Tram rides
