Wrea Green is a village in Lancashire, United Kingdom.

Get in[edit]

The village is located approximately 5 minutes away from the M55 motorway, which joins on to the major M6 road.

The only form of public transport to Wrea Green itself is by bus, and it is serviced by the following routes...

  • Stagecoach 76 - use this bus for travel to/from Lytham, St Annes, Kirkham, Moss Side and Preston. Operates on the hour every day.
  • Stagecoach 75 - use this bus for travel to/from Poulton, Singleton, Weeton, Kirkham and Preston. Operates on the hour Monday - Friday, times vary at weekends.

Rail travel is quite convenient: there are two local stations each two miles away from the village; one in Moss Side and the other in Kirkham (Kirkham & Wesham Station)

Blackpool Airport is also relatively near: it is 7 miles away and easy to reach by public transport and road.

Get around[edit]

Because it is so small, it is very easily to walk around everywhere in Wrea Green. However, to get to Ribby Hall Holiday Village, the easiest way would be to get any one of the above bus services as it is quite far from the village centre.
