About Thornton

Visit Thornton-Cleveleys and discover the attractions, cafes, shops and restaurants on offer here. Thornton-Cleveleys is located in Wyre, and is made up of two areas; Thornton, which is a small village, and Cleveleys, which is a coastal town, and each offers something different.

Thornton offers a relaxed atmosphere, with two main areas of shopping, Marsh Mill, and the village centre, offering a variety of both independent shops and brand stores. There are also plenty of cafes, restaurants, and a leisure centre. The main attraction in Thornton is Marsh Mill windmill, which was built in the 18th century, and functioned as a corn mill.​

Cleveleys offers a more traditional seaside town feel, with a row of shops leading down towards the promenade, selling everything from food to books, clothes to electricals. There are also plenty of cafes in the area, to enjoy the sun, sea breeze, and delicious food and drinks. Cleveleys also has its own cinema, skate park, gym, supermarkets, arcade, and a beautiful promenade.​

A yearly event in Cleveleys is the Cleveleys Car Show, which runs every June in the town centre, and always gathers a huge crowd.

Nearby areas to Thornton-Cleveleys include Blackpool and Fleetwood, which can both be reached by public transport from Cleveleys, including the bus and tram.
