Nature & Outdoors

Time for the great outdoors

Southport is a excellent canvas if you love the great outdoors. The largest area of wild dunes left in Britain run along the coast, home to plenty of wildlife.

Watch the natterjack toads run through the dunes, or the red squirrel climb the trees in the coastal pinewoods.

Spot one of the 300 different bird species recorded at Marshside Bird Watching area, or see the wildfowl on the flooded marshes in the winter.

Nearby Martin Mere Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust is a haven for wintering waterfowl and rare wildfowl collection. And in the February half term you can join in on their puddle jumping competition - that's what wellies were made for!

Get your bikes out and try one of the cycle routes through Southport or along the coast. Explore the different areas all specialising in different parts of the area. Butterflies, asparagus, lapwings and swans to name a few!

Loving the beach in the summer, there are great beaches along the coast. Crosby beach where you can see the Gormley statues staring out to sea, Formby beach which is naturally beautiful beach, ainsdale for water based sports and Southport for the wildlife, pier and extensive views. All of these beaches will have families on the hottest days and walkers wrapped up on the coldest of days.

Farm life is never too far away from Southport either and a short drive means the kids can be feeding animals on a working farm in either WIndmill Animal Farm or Farmer Teds. And once the summer comes to an end the farm gets ready for the nationally acclaimed Farmageddon.

Blow the cobwebs away on Southport pier, the oldest iron pier in the UK will take your breath away once you see the views at the end. And let's not forget the parks in and around Southport, they are a haven of tranquility and the perfect setting for the whole family.

The outdoor life goes beyond Southport, yet the coast is a tranquil place to stay. Dunes that go one forever, miles and miles of coast. This is the time to enjoy the British landscape, no matter what the weather.
