Welcome to Southport

Different Everytime

Situated on the Sefton coast, Southport 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'!


Time to explore 22 miles of coast

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 art installation 'Another Place', 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 expeirence every time.

Heading to Formby beach, you climb through the natural dunes until you come to the most beautful and expansive view of the coast before your eyes.

Moving towards Southport, Ainsdale beach is a haven where you can kite surf, para cart and enjoy other beach 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 expansive coastal views, we are sure you won't be disappointed;!
