What travellers are saying
- This is one of those lovely little local museums that you can just stumble across on a visit and they turn out to be an absolute gem!
We visited Fleetwood on a very windy day and wondered away from the front to get break from it! We found this very interesting place.
The museum is in lovely row of houses and you gently whind your way around all the floors ,covering local history from the very beginnings of the town and its unusual layout ,to past local industry like fishing and cargo handling to salt mining.There is alot to read ,interesting photos and some excellent artifacts and hands on exhibits - like being in the wheel house on a trawler.
While we visited there was a fab exhibition about the menthol sweet Fishermans Friends which are made locally- showing the crazy selection of flavours sold around the world!
The crowning glory of the museum which was completely unexpected, was to be taken out the back by a volunteer to be shown the Harriet- a Fleetwood sailing trawler now housed in a large shed-she has been through several incarnations and is in a bit if a state but still incredibly interesting and massive and impressive when you are stood next to her.
The Volunteer Roy was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic as were all the staff.They deserve to be well supported and keep to up the good work.
There is also a lovely cosy little cafe with cakes and warm drinks.

- The FBKafe on The Esplanade, Fleetwood, FY7 6HF is a nice place to have a coffee and possibly something to eat. If the weather is a bit blowy and you're looking for somewhere to spend half an hour I can recommend the FBK. Excellent coffee and nice sofas. Very good staff. Thank you to all concerned.Written 25 June 2023
- I appreciate the vast majority of people who go to the Affinity Outlet must come by car, but we came on foot from Fisherman's Walk tram stop. We went in the main entrance assuming there was another entrance/exit at the north end close to McDonalds but there isn't!! This was an upheaval for my mother who could've done without the extra walking. The website advertises that McDonalds is nearby but clearly this is only convenient if you can get back in your car and drive there!Written 20 November 2023
- Although the market looks old fashioned,it had lots of stalls although much aimed at the older clientele. There were some very niche stalls including a stall selling music memorabilia and miniature guitars that were nice to look at.
The cafe runs by a waitress service - however the staff need to remember they are providing a service rather than it seeming like a chore.
Toilets were adequate and well signposted on the whole. However it is very easy to get lost in there so they could improve this by more signage directing back to the cafe or exits- my wife got lost and exited the wrong side of the building.Written 4 November 2023
- Went yesterday for the first time even though I have lived here all my life and was amazed by the space and cleanliness of the place . It’s absolutely great for kids if you take a picnic as there’s nothing like a cafe etc for miles . Well I suppose the parking place neat the sea cadets building is the only cafe to eat before you go on the beach . . It’s great place for social distancing .Written 4 August 2021
- Very nice park - usually quiet and pleasant. The football stadium is in one corner, there are some very nice monuments and the duck pond is excellent. Ducks are friendly, appreciate snacks (NO BREAD, please give them seeds, oats, mealworms and so on). Indeed, there's a shop on the high street near the park (Poundsaver, I think) that sells bags of mealworms and other suitable food for the ducks, as well as nearby pet shops.Written 30 September 2023
- A 2 minute walk from both the Knott End Ferry and the tram station, located on the promenade, the Fisherman's Memorial is made from materials/equipment taken from an old trawler. It was interesting to read the information on a plague on the memorial. Nearby are wonderful statues depicting a fisherman's wife holding a small child, and accompanied by his daughter and dog, gathered and waving to great him home from a fishing trip.
Pay to use toilets are available at the opposite end of the memorial garden. These include a toilet for disabled users accessible with a Radar key.Written 25 March 2023
- Friendly and tidy ground. Good experience except the result. Set in the heart of the town. Loads of nearby free and safe street parking. Capacity of 5500 and we were in the away standing end. Friendly staff though not sure about the captain pugwash tunes when the home team scores.
Think the Howard St tram stop is outside the ground. Clean toilets and reasonable priced foodWritten 10 January 2023
- Marine Hall Garden is in Fleetwood. It is a very attractive public garden situated behind the Marine Hall which is behind the promenade.
The Marine Hall offers shows. In the side of the garden are very nicebeach huts and a large popular cafeWritten 31 July 2023
- We visit Fleetwood regularly as we find it peaceful and laid back yet each time we pass Sait Mary's (catholic) church it has always been closed this time we were lucky.
It's only a small church on Lord St. the main street in Fleetwood but inside hit us. The altar area is a blue/grey slate color made more impressive by the low lighting effect giving it a cool yet warming peaceful effect.
the organ is high up at the entrance end accessed by a Jacobean-style staircase.
it still has old-style pews rather than chairs which many churches have today and sadly replacing pews for chairs has ruined many churches.
St Mary's has some nice stained glass windows and lovely carvings Regrettably I had no camera this time so next time we visit it has to be a must.
All in all St Mary's is one of the nicest small churches we have been in for its warmth and feelings of peace which in today's world we need more than ever.Written 4 September 2023
- Have been going in here each day this week for a drink. Has to be the cleanist, most tidy, gleaming, shining pub I've been in in a long time. Everything is polished to very high standard. Also lovely atmosphere and friendly staff and customers. Just a pleasure to be in.Written 16 March 2023
- We had the best morning this morning at Glazey Days. Absolute experts at what they do, they make it fun, easy and relaxed. Such a fantastic concept and everything has been thought through so that as parents, you can relax, knowing your little ones are being guided through in a way that helps them have a great experience! My almost two year old had a ball. From booking over the phone (easy), to parking (easy), to the experience itself (easy), it’s just all really well thought through. Highly recommended!Written 10 November 2023

as a small child me and my parents would visit the Coast here in Fleetwood in the family car from Blackpool watching the fishing trawlers and seagulls sail by while eating an ice cream in the summertime on a prom bench...and even nipping over to Knott end at the Ferry port to explore...
in the early 60's just next to the Lighthouse on the corner was a little tuck shop selling sweets-gifts etc and in enterng the shop. on the wall i found this Captain Pugwash Jigsaw puzzle...my Dad bought me along with a lucky bag... as at the time Captain Pugwash was this seafaring cartoon cardboard cut out character on the Childrens TV hour and ive never forgotten to this day! such sweet memories xWritten 5 March 2023
