To learn about the history of Lancashire, visit the former Town Hall, where the Fleetwood Museum is located, and enjoy a day on Morecambe Bay.

This Grade II Listed Building is located in the seaside town of Fleetwood and makes a perfect addition to a day out on the beach. A stone’s throw from Blackpool’s Pleasure Beach, Fleetwood serves as Lancashire’s quieter tourist destination.

Fleetwood was one of the first planned towns of the Victorian era and the building that houses the Fleetwood Museum began as a customs house. The building has also been a private residence, as well as a town hall among other things. It finally opened its doors as a museum in 1992.

The museum houses a collection of items relevant to the region. Visitors will learn about the town’s Victorian roots, as well as its deep connections with the fishing industry. The museum also houses 175 years worth of history as depicted in an extensive photographic exhibition.
