Welcome to Southport

Different Everytime

Southport is situated on the Sefton coast and is easy to reach from all over the North West. Close to both Liverpool and Manchester, Southport is a great coastal town to escape the hustle and bustle of a big city for a day out, short break or a 'staycation'!

We have 22 miles of coast for you to explore

Boasting a beautiful and expansive coastline, Southport is surrounded by natural beauty, making it a great place to escape. Starting your journey along the coast, at Crosby beach you can experience the Anthony Gormley 'Another Place' art installation, 100 iron men standing proudly looking out to sea, which at various points throughout the day can be seen in very different ways, giving you a different experience every time.

Heading to Formby beach, you climb through the natural dunes until you come to the most beautiful and expansive view of the coast before your eyes. Moving towards Southport, Ainsdale beach is a haven of things to do where you can kite surf, para cart and enjoy other beach attractions and activities - perfect for active families.

Once in Southport you can leave the town behind and head to Southport beach, build sandcastles or wander down the pier and enjoy the beautiful coastal views, we are sure you won't be disappointed!

We cannot wait to welcome you back to our world class events!

Watch the birdies fly on our world-class golf courses or feel the need for speed at the Southport Air Show. Watch music and sparks make magic in the sky at the British Musical Fireworks Championship. Time to fill your tummies, it's time for the Food and Drink Festival.

All year round, Southport is host to many events, making your visits different every time!

We boast a great selection of independent restaurants serving local produce

Boasting the most independent eateries and restaurants outside of London, Southport is rich with its food offering. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee stop or food on the go - there is always time to sample some high-quality cuisine in Southport.

Inspired by European style food markets that have been adopted across the UK, the NEW Southport Market is here! Open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am 'til late, there's something for everyone. Greek, Canadian, Mexican, Italian... ten local, independent traders cover a variety of cuisines from around the world, and are joined by a stunning feature bar.

Once the night time arrives it is time to explore the bars and pubs in Southport. Gin bars, whiskey bars, speakeasy bars, this is your time and whatever you fancy, you can enjoy it in Southport!

The seaside is a great day out with all of the family

Whether it is building sandcastles on the beach with the kids, or eating fish and chips on the promenade watching the sun go down. Enjoying the tranquillity of the coast wandering along the Pier or having some fun in the arcades.

Trying the exciting water sports or the thrills of a funfair, exhilarating for all of the family or a more active day riding a bike down the promenade, exploring nature reserves and enjoying some of the best walking and cycling routes.

Why not make it a staycation?

Boutique hotels, luxurious B&B’s, warm and cosy 'home from home' guest houses.

Southport is brimming over with places to stay the night, weekend or longer. Pick and choose to suit your needs from family breaks, to a weekend with friends - we have all you need for the perfect getaway!
