Summer Holidays in Southport

We’ve all so much to do in Southport. We don’t need to hop on a plane, we’ve got glorious beaches, great food, and plenty to entertain the kids over the summer holidays, and it’s just down the road. We’re free to enjoy all the things that we love in our favourite seaside town. We can live again.

We can enjoy a foodies’ feast at the newly opened Southport Market. With a huge choice of street food and drinks, Southport Market is a must-visit – whether you're a certified food lover or just peckish. From wood-fired pizzas to Portuguese tarts to sushi, people any age and with any dietary requirements will eat well. Southport Market is open Wednesdays – Sundays. Find out more here.

We can grab a bike and blanket and head to the seaside for a day filled with summer fun on glorious beaches from Ainsdale, Crosby, and Formby, to Southport, better pack the sun cream. Or perhaps a stop in Victoria Park to rest our legs.

We can enjoy all the thrills of the Log Flume, Frisbee, Remix and Waltzers in our favourite Theme Park, Southport Pleasureland. We can scream together again.

For an extra special treat for little ones this summer, there’s the Alice in Wonderland experience, curiouser and curiouser? Find out more here.

If the weather’s rubbish, we can head over to The Atkinson and pretend we’re in Ancient Egypt, or to Ocean Plaza and enjoy the cinema or bowling before dining out. There are so many attractions on offer in Southport.

We can stay with friends in one of the many fine hotels or B&Bs. We can enjoy a night of food, drink and dancing and laughter in Southport before waking up and doing it all over again. Perhaps even squeezing in a round of golf or a spot of retail therapy and a quiet coffee, before heading home.

We can enjoy amazing events with family and friends again. Our beloved Southport Food and Drink Festival is back, this time in September. We’ve got plenty to tantalise our taste buds over a weekend of good food and good company. Details here. 

We can enjoy a romantic moment in the sun in the Botanic Gardens or King’s Gardens. Or perhaps a stroll hand in hand along Southport Pier with a bag of fish and chips or an ice cream at the end, taking in the amazing views. Those summer memories are waiting for us all in Southport. We can hug and hold each other again.

We are beside ourselves to be beside the seaside again.

We can Love Southport again.
