Group & Coach Travel

Southport is the ideal destination for your group, whether it’s for a short break or day visit. Southport is proud of its ‘coach and group friendly’ reputation and has a number of initiatives in place to help make planning your visit easy and enjoyable. The town was one of the first in the country to receive the coveted Confederation of Passenger Transport’s ‘Coach Friendly Local Authority’ award, recognising dedication to group travel.

There are a number of initiatives available to give your party the warm welcome they deserve including:

Coach Hosts
From Easter to the end of October, Southport’s award winning Coach Hosts are available to meet and greet coach visitors dropping off at the coach set down point on Lord Street (outside the old TIC). Each passenger will receive a free Visitor Passport containing money off coupons to use during their visit, along with information about what to do and where to go in the town. This service is completely FREE.

Reward Schemes and Vouchers
The Coach Drivers Passport is a free to join scheme which rewards drivers bringing coaches to Southport.  Each time you park at the Coach Park you will be given one driver’s stamp and for each four visits, you will receive a £10.00 Marks & Spencer gift voucher - after sixteen visits you will get an additional £10.00 voucher. To join the scheme, simply pick up a passport from either the Tourist Information Centre (TIC), one of the Coach Hosts or the Eco Visitor Centre.

Group Discounts and Sales
Southport has a superb programme of events running throughout the year, including the Southport Flower Show, the Southport Air Show and the British Musical Fireworks Championship. Discounts are available for pre-booked groups

For Flower Show group tickets, please call 01704 547147.

Tickets for the Air Show can be purchased here and for the Fireworks here.

Splash World, Southport’s water park, is open throughout the year and also offers excellent discounts for pre-booked groups of 15 or more. Please contact Diana Kelly on 0151 288 6956 or
