Hotels in Formby

The seaside town of Formby is a much loved tourist destination, with a relaxed atmosphere and café culture.

You can spend your time hopping from boutique to café on the charming streets, while making your way through the town towards the beach to take in the beautiful sea views. But originally, this little place was a thriving shrimp and cockle fishing area.

Rich in sea and wildlife to this day, much of the surrounding countryside is protected greenbelt land, and the coast has been designated as a place of scientific interest.

Best spots

The top place to go to in Formby is the beach. Sandy and windswept, this beautiful setting is the perfect place to escape to. The landscape around is dotted with sand dunes, ponds, lakes and it's teeming with wildlife. And you can even see the 7,000-year-old Formby Footprints in the eroded patches of sand.

There are other intriguing places to see during your stay though. Freshfields Squirrel Reserve is a lovely little destination. Formby Hall is a grand historic building, Grade II listed and dating back to the 13th century, and Anthony Gormley's Another Place art installations are nearby.

Popular hotels and restaurants

For Formby hotels, check out the Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa for a luxurious stay, or B&B's close to the town like The Squirrels and Brooklands Cottage. That way you can immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the town and get to the beach and countryside easily.

Formby eateries are great to explore –there's so much choice. Favourites include The Kitchen, a traditional British restaurant, Ezo Mediterranean Café Bar Restaurant, The Pinewoods and Bistro Moulin.

With so much to experience in this picturesque little place, do your research before your trip and you'll be sure to have the best time while you're there.
