Southport Attractions

Southport has a number of attractions from the traditional beach variety to family fun and much more.

Attractions in Southport include the town’s historic Pier, the second longest and oldest in the country.

Kings Gardens is also a must visit attraction, currently undergoing a major redevelopment to bring it back to its former glory, the gardens will be steeped in history and the beauty of nature.

If family attractions are what you are after then be sure to head for the thrills and spills of Splash World water park, ideally located by the Eco Centre Park and Ride.

Or head to Silcocks Funland the biggest family ammusement centre in town and home to many traditional amusements and rides.

Around the edge of Marine Lake is the Model Railway Village, 1.5 acres of minature landscape and an ideal place to take the kids.

More family attractions include go karts on Southport’s seafront, crazy golf or pitch and putt plus evening entertainment at Premier Bowl or Genting Casino, fully equipped with a bar, dance floor and restaurant!

For quintessentially English attractions look no further then the British Lawnmower Museum – the only one of its kind, attracting visiters from across the country and national press on a regular basis, this museum is simply a 'must see' attraction

Just out of town are three great family attractions too; WWT Martin Mere, Windmill Animal Farm and Farmer Ted’s.
