As you walk up Victoria Street, on the left hand side you’ll see Fleetwood Market. The market is a big feature of life in the town.
Market Rights were first granted in 1275, but it was 1840 before Sir Peter Hesketh-Fleetwood started using those rights. In 1990 the market was extended and it now boasts indoor and outdoor stalls that sell a whole host of goodies – from fresh fish to big knickers!
The market is very popular and is a regular venue for coach trips. On every third Friday of the month there is a Farmers’ Market. Take a look at the market’s website for details of market days and the traders you can find there.
Opposite the market entrance, down Custom House Lane, you will see a wooden building. This is the back of Fleetwood Museum, where they are working on a major project of restoring an old fishing boat called The Harriet.
Carry on up Victoria Street and walk through Pocket Park. This was originally built by volunteers from the Fleetwood Rotary Club in 1998.
Cross over the road using the zebra crossing, and turn left to walk down Lord Street (head in the direction of the clock tower).
