Enjoy the views and sunsets at this Lancashire fishing town.

Fleetwood is a perfect location to capture one a beautiful coastal sunset, the esplanade in the north-east of the town is where Morecambe Bay meets the Wyre Estuary.

While on the western side, you can enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the Irish Sea, especially from the Rossall Point Observation Tower, although the highest building in the town is the Pavilion in the Mount.

Fleetwood can also boast of two lighthouses, the Pharos and Lower Lighthouses, opened in 1840 and still in operation to this day.

Further evidence of the maritime past of Fleetwood is the ‘Welcome Home’ sculpture which was erected as a tribute to Fleetwood fishermen throughout the years. The bronze depicts a family anxiously waiting for the ships to come into the harbour.
