Southport has been names as the best location for exercise lovers in England and Wales according to Forbes Advisor.

With a score of 79.94, Southport comes ahead of places including Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Stoke-on-Trent, St Albans and Sutton Coldfield.

The town scores particularly well for green space with over a quarter of surface area in the town being green, with beautiful spaces including Botanic Gardens, Hesketh Park & Victoria Park, host to many events throughout the year!

We also have 22 miles of beautiful coastline where you can enjoy running, walking, cycling and exploring with the little ones.

This is the seventh-largest percentage of green space of all cities analysed, and just 9.97% less green space than Sutton Coldfield which takes the top spot in this category (35.73%).

We knew Southport was pretty special, this just add to how much we LOVE Southport.
