Lytham St Annes is located on the Fylde coast, directly south of Blackpool on the Ribble Estuary.
The population at the 2011 census was 42,954.[2] The town is almost contiguous with Blackpool but is separated from it by Blackpool Airport.
The town is made up of the four areas of Lytham, Ansdell, Fairhaven and St Annes-on-Sea.
Lytham St Annes has four golf courses and links, the most notable being the Royal Lytham & St Annes Golf Club, which has hosted the Open Championship 11 times from 1926 until its most recent in 2012.
The Open brings a major influx of visitors, including the world's media.
Lytham St Annes is a reasonably affluent area with residents' earnings among the highest in the North of England
Lytham was founded around 600 BC.
For many centuries the economy of Lytham was dependent on fishing and shrimping, until the advent of tourism and seaside health cures.
After the start of the Industrial Revolution, wealthy industrialists moved from the east of the county. Lytham's tree-lined streets are flanked by small shops, many of which are family businesses.
The name Lytham comes from the Old English hlithum, plural of hlith meaning '(place at) the slopes'
