Southport

UK travel information

The coastal town of Southport is one of the North West’s forgotten gems, a charming and historic town that is often overlooked in terms of tourism yet is a delight to visit.

Sixteen miles north of Liverpool, Southport offers a coastline that is famous for its distinctive sand dunes and which is home to a diverse and unique variety of wildlife, while the town itself is one that has managed to hang on to its historic charm. A largely Victorian town in terms of architecture, sites worth a visit are the famous Hesketh Park and the historic Southport Pier, one of the longest in the country, while visitors flock here each year to the famous annual flower show and coastal air show, both now firmly established events on the annual calendar.

With much in the way of interesting and quirky shops plus a wide selection of cafes and bars, Southport is a town with much to offer, and the sheer diversity of this pretty town is well worth a visit.
