The walk scarcely needs a longer description! Use the free parking by the North Euston Hotel, which is right on the seafront at the very north of Fleetwood. Cross to the seafront and turn left. Having passed the pier take a right turn, which brings you onto the sea wall. Here you can go onto the beach until the height of the groynes forces you back onto the sea wall. At Bispham you can take a tram back or continue all the way to Blackpool. At the end of the walk take a tram back anyway. It will take about an hour and cost around £2.

The details of this walk are significantly out of date. The first point is that there is no longer a pier or pier building in Fleetwood as noted at WP2. Your reference point to get onto the “promenade” is to turn left at the Marine Hall (under renovation at the date of this update) or the Leisure Centre / Swimming Pool. Secondly “The Royal Hotel” referred to at WP3 is no longer called that but is now called “The Venue”. If however, you want to cut short the walk as we did (see later) you can walk down the road to the left of “The Venue” and bear right at the end and after about 5-10 mins. you will come to the tramway at Thornton Gate between Blackpool and Fleetwood rather than progressing to WP6 on the walk. Note of caution – check that the tramway is working before you set out on the walk if you want to use it to travel back to Fleetwood. We did not and only by chance discovered that the tramway was closed for maintenance (in July !!!). We managed to catch a bus at Thornton Gate back to Fleetwood. The walk is an unremarkable one really as it is the same landscape all the way until presumably you get to Blackpool. But it is a surfaced walk, clean under foot and is fairly straightforward if not memorable.

Chose this walk because the fields are so bad at present. Really enjoyed it and have since completed more sections of the Lancashire Coastal Way - well worth doing and mostly on dry land.
