“Fabulous sea front”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

The many thousands of pounds spent on improvements to the promenade at Cleveleys has made it into one of the most beautiful promenades in England - I don't know any better. A lovely walk, great architecture and planning, plenty of seats and a great café. A must!

“very pretty”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Whether walking or cycling the promenade in Cleveleys is the place to do it. The area is large enough for walkers, cyclists, wheelchair users and anyone else who wants to get out in the fresh air. In the evenings the promenade is lit up with colour changing lights. There are plenty of sculptures to look at and the sun sets are beautiful.

“A credit to Cleveleys”
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We love taking the kids and our dog down on to the beach at Cleveleys. The new promenade is always popular with visitors in summer.

“Smart in some ways, but a bit too futuristic for me.”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

I always used to visit Cleveleys in the 80's, when the kids were young and I've many happy memories of the place. It's still a lovely place and retains most of its charm, but I'm not too sure the futuristic promenade fits in with the atmosphere of the town. The concrete - everywhere - is still very new and as a result it's so bright as to make your eyes ache, on a sunny day. It also seems ridiculously out of scale with the surroundings. In fairness, maybe I'm just a little too fond of my memories of it in the past and no doubt the weather will tone down the brightness over the coming years - beauty is in the eye of the beholder, as always. Other than that, Cleveleys always gives the impression that it's trying so hard to compete with bigger brother Blackpool. In that, it succeeds brilliantly and wins hands down, for me. This pleasant little seaside town offers cleanliness, lovely sea views and a plethora of shops and good value cafes and restaurants and so well deserves its good reputation, so the promenade wouldn't ever put me off visiting.
