Here at Hy, we’re lucky that our local area offers fantastic things to see and do all year round. Staying at our luxury hotel in Lytham St Annes means that you’re never far away from some exciting activities for all the family.

Come September, there should still be plenty of sunshine to enjoy, but the evenings will start to darken earlier too, so why not wrap up warm, take a hot flask down to the beach and do a spot of star gazing? You’ll love visiting the bright lights of Blackpool on your family holiday.
