Things to do in Cleveleys

Exploring Cleveleys beach and sculpture trail

Cleveleys is a situated on the Fylde Coast in between Blackpool and Fleetwood. It has much to offer visitors on a day trip from Moss Wood Caravan Park, including a beautiful beach, plentiful shops and an impressive sculpture trail.

One of our favourite things about this popular seaside resort is the beautiful stretch of golden sand that flanks the town and promenade. It’s the perfect place to spend quality family time, building sandcastles, relaxing and taking in the beautiful views. On a clear day you can look across the Irish Sea towards The Lakes, Wales and the Isle of Man in the distance. You’ll also catch a glimpse of the windfarm that sits a couple of miles offshore.

Mythic Coast Artwork Trail

Make sure you take some time out from your beach day to follow the Mythic Coast Artwork Trail. Local artist, Stephen Broadbent has designed a collection of intricate sculptures based on The Sea Swallow, a children’s book which tells tales of myth and legend along Wyre’s coastline. The Seashell is perhaps the most iconic of these structures, thanks to its prominent position on the sand at low water. Other sculptures depicting the storyline can be found on the promenade, including ‘Sea Swallows’, ‘Shipwrecks’ and ‘The Paddle’.

Public gardens & green spaces

Just behind the promenade, Jubilee Gardens is well worth a visit. There’s plenty of green space for picnics, ball games and for the children to run and play. Younger members of the family can make use of the adventure playground with swings and a climbing frame. For older children there’s a purpose built skatepark where they can hone their skating skills.

The Towers Woodland is also a popular spot for visitors who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the town centre. There’s a small woodland area with a network of hard-standing footpaths for you to stretch your legs and walk the dog. Along the route you’ll find the duckpond with benches to enjoy the views. If you’re lucky, you may spot one of the resident terrapins or a heron looking for something to eat!

There’s also a weekly market that can be found at the Plaza on the seafront every Wednesday (weather permitting).

Trams 

If you’d like to explore a little further afield, why not discover more of the area by tram? There’s a regular service with modern trams connecting Cleveleys with Blackpool, Fleetwood and other towns along the Fylde coast. For special occasions heritage trams travel the route, allowing you to step back in time.
