Cleveleys is only four miles north of Blackpool but despite the fact that it is joined to its larger neighbour, it retains a unique atmosphere of its own with many attractions.
Cleveleys is increasingly becoming a seaside destination in its own right, the town easily accessible from Blackpool on the regular tram but far enough away to have retained its own character. This seaside resort is far quieter than Blackpool and this lends itself to a relaxing atmosphere, the promenade similar in many ways to that of Blackpool but far quieter. There is a wide sandy beach which is backed by the Jubilee Gardens, the latter having benefitted from a large-scale renovation in recent years.
Cleveley’s town centre stretches away from the promenade and the high street contains many bars, restaurants and major stores. There is also a street market which operates each Wednesday from 9am to 4pm. Parking around the town centre is completely free, however as already mentioned the tram operates at regular intervals between Blackpool and Cleveleys, the journey taking less than 20 minutes.
While Cleveleys is a peaceful laid-back resort, all the attractions of Blackpool are right on your doorstep. The Blackpool Illuminations start just south of Cleveley’s while the Blackpool Tower can easily be seen from the promenade. In the opposite direction, Fleetwood is just 10 minutes away on the tram and this seaside destination has many attractions in its own right.
There’s plenty to do in Cleveley’s all year round. The Air Skate Park is a popular indoor attraction which is suitable for all the family while Children’s Corner is an indoor soft play area for younger kids. The beach is less crowded than that of nearby Blackpool and on the waterfront stands Cleveley’s most well known pice of public art, Mary’s Shell. This is part of a public art trail in the town and has proven to be hugely popular with both visitors and locals alike.
