Life in Blackpool, Fylde & Wyre
All our academies are located on the Fylde Coast, in Lancashire. Much of the Fylde Coast, especially Blackpool, is based around tourism, but there are plenty of more traditional local towns and villages such as historic Poulton-Le-Fylde, Wrea Green and Kirkham to name a few. If you are considering moving to the area to work at one of our academies this page might help you realise what a fun and interesting place the Fylde Coast is to live on.
There’s always something fun happening on the Fylde to keep you entertained. Many are free to attend.
Blackpool World Fireworks Championships, Blackpool Air Show, Blackpool Illuminations, Strictly Come Dancing at Blackpool Tower Ballroom, Fleetwood Tram Sunday, St Annes International Kite Festival, Lytham Club Day, Lytham Festival.
Blackpool also boasts the Winter Gardens, Zoo, Grand Theatre, Grundy Art Gallery, Sealife Centre, Madame Tussauds waxworks, and the Pleasure Beach.
There are miles of beautiful sandy beaches on the Fylde Coast and the scenic Lake District National Park and Forest of Bowland AONB are within easy reach. But if you wish for something more urban, then Manchester, Liverpool, Lancaster and other vibrant cities in the North West are also close by.
