Live here or visit,
we love it!

Poulton-le-Fylde is a pretty, historic market town where you can still enjoy a weekly general market and shopping in the compact town centre. It’s a central spot for exploring beautiful countryside and the nearby Wyre coastline of Fleetwood and Cleveleys. This website will show you around Poulton with information about the place and the people who live here – for residents and visitors.
