Lytham & St Annes
Venture a little south of the tower, golden mile and Pleasure Beach and you’ll come to the seaside resort of Lytham St Annes, which comes with a variety of dog walking highlights.
With sand dunes to shelter from the bracing winds, Lytham’s stunning beach is the highlight of the resort’s dog walking amenities and open for dogs all year round (aside from the section between the lifeboat station slipway and the northern end of North Promenade car park, which boasts dog walking bans between May – September).
Aside from seaside shenanigans, Lytham St Annes also offers a variety of dog friendly establishments, including cafes, pubs and restaurants, meaning you’ll never be stuck for where to head for a well earned sit down and beverage.
We recommend Number Fifteen – it might be the only pub in the area that doesn’t offer food, but it’s super cosy and dog friendly too!
