St Annes overlooks the Irish Sea and is located on the Fylde Coast. It was initially founded in the 1870s and it was planned by Elisha Hargreaves. Hargreaves was a businessman who thought that there would be a lot of value for people visiting the area.
He wanted to create a town which was incredibly picturesque and would draw many tourists every year to come and see it sights and attractions. He intended to create a place that was both entertaining and relaxing at the same time.

It is known particularly as a great place for the elderly and is one of the most popular retirement destinations in the country. That said, it is also a great destination for a weekend getaway.
Accommodation options in the town are wide ranging and they are all of a very high standard. As mentioned, this town appeals to people of all situations, and the accommodation is no exception.

One of the greatest attractions in the town is the Victorian Pier. This was constructed in the late 1870s but wasn’t opened until the mid-1880s. Up until the present day there been a great deal of renovations on the pier but its heritage has been left just as it was when it was first constructed.
There are numerous arcade games located on the pier which will appeal to children, as well as adults who want to relive a bit of their youth. All of this is complimented by the beautiful surroundings of the Irish Sea.
