As a further update, Motorhome Voyager has today (10th January 2018), received details of a new, second motorhome parking area in the Lytham St Annes area – please tab down to the “comments” section at the end of this review, particularly the information provided by Fylde Borough Council. Three more cheers for Fylde BC! 

Further update – April 2019 – public toilets to be constructed at the second motorhome parking area – read the “comments” at the end of this post for full details, direct from Fylde Borough Council

We had a day at the coast this week, albeit by car rather than “avec le camping car”. We parked up at St Annes on Sea, just a couple of miles south of Blackpool. St Anne’s is a much quieter resort and we had gone there with the intention of having lunch and a walk on the prom etc.

We parked up at a Toby Carvery and were shocked to find a pay and display car park in operation. However the first £2 of the ticket was refunded off the cost of the bill. Fair enough, given this Toby is a sea front location.

Whilst walking around, we spotting a sign for overnight motorhome parking.

Motorhome parking St Annes on Sea – location

For a payment of £5, you can park, and stay overnight, from 1800 – 1000 a.m. the following day. There are no facilities such as fresh or waste water, but this “aire” seems to be in a quiet location. The location is behind the cinema, near the Toby, right on the sea front and close to the swimming pool. It is set back from the main promenade and any road noise is “blocked” by the cinema and swimming pool building.  The motorhome parking is behind the buildings and so the motorhomes are “out of sight” of the local residents.

***Update – waste water provision located approximately 500 metres away. There is a free parking spot for 20 minutes adjacent to the sluice***

A little further investigation found this link on the Fylde Borough Council website in reference to motorhome parking. Note that Fylde Borough Council does not cover Blackpool – this is covered by Blackpool Borough Council! Please also read the “motorhome overnight parking pilot report”. It seems the scheme has been a success to date and the it must be noted that Fylde Borough Council has spent a fair bit of money “behind the scenes” to make this overnight provision possible.

Note also the free coach parking at St Annes – another gesture by the council to welcome visitors but please note I am not suggesting motorhomes park in the coach bay!

Now just up the road, we have Blackpool. A quick look on the Blackpool Borough Council website reveals where motorhomes can park. A call to the parking office detailed the coach parking areas and also the tariff – but, you cannot stay in the vehicle. I was advised of a £10 tariff for 24 hours parking, but the council employee repeated the fact about not remaining in the vehicle.

Blackpool council looks after the area from Starr Gate (near the old Pontins) towards Anchorsholme on the north shore. Here, Wyre council takes over and controls the area to Fleetwood. Wyre council website does not offer and specific information but a quick call on 01253 891000 seems to suggest that they have no overnight facilities but you can park a motorhome in a car park, but pay for the number of spaces occupied.

So, it seems a “well done” to Fylde Borough Council. Let’s hope some of the other coastal councils follow suit.

If you are a fan of aires, this book is worthy of a read. It covers 27 countries with clear information about each parking location.
