Find Cleveleys town centre between the sea front and the Blackpool to Fleetwood tramway, for a great mix of local shopping by the sea.
Family Friendly Shopping by the Sea
Cleveleys is one of the best places for family friendly shopping by the sea. And you’ll find a really good mix of shops here, all close to each other, without having to walk a long way between shops, like you would in some town centres.
In Cleveleys town centre you’ll find national names, side-by-side with local independents. Visit a really good mix of shops which includes clothes, food retailers, supermarkets, furniture and homewares. We’ve got independent butchers, bakers (sorry – no candlestick makers!), cheese shop, fishmongers, fruit and veg, and many more.
In common with many town centres we have our share of charity shops in Cleveleys. However, they’re all excellent quality. Well presented and well stocked they’re somewhere to bag a bargain, help a good cause and put unwanted possessions to good use. They’re very popular with shoppers – in fact they’re a visitor attraction in their own right!
You can actually sustain yourself quite nicely with the shops at Cleveleys if you can’t, or don’t want to go elsewhere. There aren’t many small town centres that can still say that!
Watch the world go by
Cleveleys town centre is a great place to watch the world go by. The main section of high street has a wide pavement with plenty of benches and there are lots of pavement cafes too. It’s a friendly place, so if you sit down you can bet you’ll end up chatting to someone!
There are often street entertainers and buskers playing in the town centre which makes for a nice atmosphere, especially on a sunny day.
Victoria Road West
The main shopping street in Cleveleys town centre is Victoria Road West. It runs at right angles from the promenade, intersecting the tramway at Victoria Square.
Victoria Road West continues as far inland as the big roundabout. That’s the junction for Morrison’s supermarket, Victoria Road East (to Thornton), Fleetwood and the A585.
Victoria Road West begins at the promenade at the clock shelter (below). This is near to the open space on the promenade at Cleveleys seafront, known locally as the Plaza.
There are shops along the main road, along the tramway and the side streets which join Victoria Road West, on both sides of the road.

Would you like to be Involved?
Cleveleys was awarded a £10,000 government grant in early 2017 to establish a Coastal Community Team.
