Situated on the Lancashire coast, Fleetwood is well established as one of the UK's major ports for ro-ro traffic to and from Northern Ireland, and has been a major fishing port for 90 years. The sheltered enclosed dock houses a marina with 300 fully serviced berths, a dry storage compound and comprehensive facilities for the leisure sailor. It is an ideal base for cruises to Morecambe Bay and the Irish Sea. A 28 ha area of land around Wyre Dock is currently undergoing considerable redevelopment. Known as Fleetwood Harbour Village, this redevelopment scheme features a major retail multiple outlet, located adjacent to the 6 ha Freeport Fleetwood shopping and leisure complex, and to a residential development.
