* Kite Festival: Joined by kite teams from across the UK and overseas, the event will make the skies above St Anne’s seafront awash with colour on Saturday and Sunday as fabulous display kites take to the air on the beach adjacent to the pier.
St Annes retains many of its original period buildings in the town and along the promenade and much of the original Victorian/Edwardian character.
This family friendly resort still bursts into flower each summer, just like it did when its forefathers were gardening there. You can also see the history of St Annes in the architecture at the seafront and promenade.
St Annes claims to fame include being the original home of ERNIE, the premium bond selector. Make sure you visit the statue of the late, great, Les Dawson, laughing on the seafront near to the pier.
