Cleveleys town centre joins the sea front and the Blackpool to Fleetwood tramway, for a good mix of local shopping by the sea.
Victoria Road West
Victoria Road West (below) is the main shopping street in Cleveleys town centre.
It runs at right angles between the promenade and the Blackpool/Fleetwood tramway at Victoria Square.
Have a walk along Victoria Road West in this short video clip –
Victoria Road West starts at the promenade at the clock shelter (below). This is near to the open space on the promenade known locally as the Plaza.

Looking along Victoria Road West from the sea, past the clock shelter, towards the tramway.
The side streets which join Victoria Road West are also lined in shops on both sides of the road.
Victoria Road West crosses the tramway at Victoria Square in the centre of Cleveleys (below).
Between the junction of the tramway and the next at the traffic lights at North Drive there are more shops on Victoria Road West.
Continue heading inland and you next come to a big roundabout which is the junction for Morrison’s, Victoria Road East (to Thornton), Fleetwood and the A585.
Crescent East and Rossall Road are the two approaches into Victoria Square alongside the tramway (below). There are shops along both sides of the road here too.
Where the tramway cross through the middle of Victoria Road West, shops follow the tracks in both directions along Kelso Avenue heading south, and Rossall Road which is northwards.

Family Friendly Shopping by the Sea
Cleveleys is one of the best places for family friendly shopping by the sea.
When you’ve finished in the town centre, enjoy a lovely stroll along the sea front and beautiful promenade.
You’ll find a really good mix of shops all close to each other, without having to walk a long way between shops like you would in some town centres.
Plus there are plenty of cafes and benches so you can make an afternoon of it and have five minutes to sustain yourself to carry on!
There are high street names at Cleveleys, side-by-side with local independents, and a really good mix of shops which includes clothes, food, supermarkets, furniture and homewares.
In fact, you could sustain yourself quite nicely with the shops at Cleveleys if you couldn’t, or didn’t want to, go elsewhere!
Cleveleys is a great place to watch the world go by.
The main section of town centre has a wide pavement with plenty of benches and there are lots of pavement cafes too. Sit down for a while and 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.
You’ll also find events things going on at Cleveleys – either on the high street or on the Plaza performance area on the promenade.
