Freeport is a large retail shopping area in the town of Fleetwood near Blackpool. There is a wide range of shops available mostly well known retailers as well as a few smaller ones as well you will also find a few places to eat and drink as well there is only one entry and exit point to the site this is indicated by a number of flags as you approach the site. There are display boards as you enter the site giving the location of each shop it is a very large site and is open with lots of spaces to move about. Freeport is like many other out of town shopping villages many of the shops have special offers on or are selling end of line stock at a reduced price
Transport & Parking
The parking is divided up in to areas however each are has number of Blue Badge Spaces available these are nearest to the main gates in to the shopping area. We used the tram from Blackpool to travel through the tram lets you off at Fisherman's Walk this is a good ten minutes away from Freeport. The number 1 Bus runs from the gate of Freeport to St Anne's and goes along the sea front on Blackpool we used this to return to Blackpool all buses on this service were low floor access
The information points give you information of each shops location the site is very open and large with space to move about there is also plenty of seating available throughout the site as well this is mostly garden bench type seating. The site is basically level a few sloping areas for drainage etc. but nothing major
Two toilets one at each end of the site the first one is as you enter the site is on the right hand side the second is at the far end of the site both were clean and grip rails available.
There are a range of staff due to the number of shops however any of the staff we meet in the units we visited were very happy to assist you if they could.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
We did not visit all the shops on site as you might expect some of the shops had a lot of stock on display and it was difficult to move in these shops
