Bless you The main thing to note is that its going to be busy! Half term week and the roads getting onto the start of the lights will be slow but still fun! Well the following is more a bit of a tourist information bit about car parks in the towns south of Blackpool St Annes This is getting a little bit more refined now as its St Annes don't you know, so here the car park is a lot smaller than Blackpool but would possibly be quiet but the downside is its a pay and display, so someone will need to keep an eye on your van. There is a car park in front of the pier that is free and would most probably be empty, but its a go and find out. Facilities are all around, just a two minute walk away there is costa, marks and sparks and a decent chippy…. It is packed on bike night (every Monday) so its got quality approval. There is parking available in the town its self but its tight, and you are parking with joe public Distance to start of lights approx 2.5 mile Lytham This is defo the posh option! There are some nice pubs, eats up, in the town, but the car parks could be busy and there is no alternative but the road, this town does though have a branch of the best chippy on the Fylde coast…Seniors, its costly but awesome!! It’s also quiet scenic so quality pictures could be taken but Granny's bay is another option to access Lytham if you fancy a walk on Saturday. The car parks in Lytham are pay and display during the day, free after 6. Distance to start of lights approx 5 mile Other Options (St Annes / Lytham) I have placed this on more if you want a bit of a bimble on the Saturday at a bit of a more relaxed pace... Granny's bay known locally, to the non-locals fairhaven lake. Lovely spot this, nice views on a sunny day, but does get busy due to this fact. The other car park (more towards Blackpool) is an option for meeting up, its good to park on for beach access, but if I was honest the roads are possible more safer during the day if the beach was your plan. This is just a meet up option.
