This route is almost entirely along the seaside promenade and is surfaced the entire way. The only kerbs are dropped and there are no narrow sections. There are several possible lines to follow: the beach (not surfaced, obviously), two or three levels of promenade walkway/cycleway, the pathway alongside the tramline, or even the main road pavement if you want! There are links between them, dotted all the way along, although some involve steps, but more often gentle slopes. Access to the beach is sometimes limited by a water-filled channel which often forms at the base of the sea wall or steps, so be aware of this around high tide especially. There are benches, shelters, and toilets (unisex with individual doors, 40p in Blackpool or 30p further along, also accessible) dotted along throughout the route, and also bus and tram stops (although the tramline moves inland north of Little Bispham). Shops and restaurants are mostly located at either end of the route.
All the way along there are superb views – north to the Lake District and south to North Wales on a clear day. There are also the illuminations and the usual seaside trappings. And the route couldn’t be easier to navigate!.
