Time to Escape

Embrace the season of change, escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and have fun without travelling too far on a micro-adventure across Southport’s coast. Sample our rich offering of culture, events, food and drink in a spectacular colourful setting. It’s time for some sea breeze amongst the autumn leaves….

Morning

Start your day at the highly rated Lords Café Bar, open from 9.00am, it’s the perfect spot to ensure you’re full of beans (quite literally) until your next meal.

Pedal (or a short drive to ‘Another Place’ - 100 cast-iron, life-size public art figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach.

Lunch

Southport is scattered with independent restaurants, which pride themselves on providing the freshest locally sourced ingredients as possible – the café at The Atkinson is a great way to combine culture and cuisine. Alternatively, try out one of our famous Tea Rooms on the Victorian canopied and tree-lined Lord Street!

Afternoon

There are many places to find that elusive ‘me time’ from our parks and open spaces, but why not seek the ultimate chill at The Vincent Hotel, home to a House Evelyn spa on the top floor and book yourself in for a relaxing treatment?

Alternatively, if retail therapy is more your thing, then our independent and quirky boutiques will offer the perfect remedy!

Or why not take a look around the Westwood exhibitin at The Atkinson - this exhibition looks back at designs and campaigns of The Grand Dame of fashion today, Vivienne Westwood!

Evening

Head out for a fabulous pre-show evening meal at Auberge Brasserie, which has a delicious food in a lovely setting, all topped off with a French atmosphere. Some may even say it’s the ‘crème del a crème'.

Take in a performance at the Southport Theatre or The Atkinson, which regularly play host to comedians and performing art productions, or experience the beautiful art-deco ballroom  (where legends such as Pink Floyd and the Beatles have all taken to the stage in the past) now home to the latest live acts including ‘Bongo’s Bingo’.

Finish the night at a craft ale tap house or one of the late hour bars, which serve gin cocktails and other exciting elixirs, and dance the night away!
