Inland at the neighbouring village of Thornton, enjoy exploring a historic windmill or spend time relaxing in the picturesque country park. The Ribchester Roman Museum contains many relics. The remains of an ancient Norman chapel at Stydd, a mile from the village, house a 16th Century font, bearing the arms of the de Lacys, with several ancient coffins and incised tombstones. In contrast to its ancient centre, the town has a warm, friendly atmosphere with cosy tea rooms, exclusive shops and restaurants serving mouthwatering recipes from around the world. Enjoy the delights of the promenade with outdoor activities at Jubilee Gardens and mini rides at Kiddies Corner or simply relax and soak up the sun or the traditional sea air! Historic villages such as Hornby, Wray and Melling lie waiting to be discovered.
