Weekend Escapes

We all want to make the most of our weekends, so how about sipping away your spring days with a chilled glass of wine, breathing in the fresh sea air and embracing the outdoors in Southport. 

Let us help you plan a weekend break that’s different every time, bursting with heritage, culture and activities, surrounded by the stunning scenery of Southport, spend your spring escaping from the hustle of the ‘big city’ and recharging your batteries.

Start your morning with adventure...

Head half an hour along the coast to Formby, where you can enjoy nature at its finest; pinewoods to dunes, red squirrels and deciduous woodland, start your morning submersed in nature's wonders.

With over 183 open spaces, journey through the breath-taking Southport landscapes, perfect for outdoor adventures and capturing that all-important Instagram shot! Whether you take a selfie with the Crosby beach sculptures, or simply capture nature in it’s most beautiful form, spring in Southport is certainly worth an upload.

Explore the continent at lunchtime...

From traditional British cuisine, to a taste of the Mediterranean, Asian and American, Southport is the perfect place to grab a bite to eat from around the world- why not try our delicious sushi for a little added treat! Explore our restaurants.

To cater for those rainy days, why not relax in one of our coffee shops - grab a coffee to go, or sit back, relax and watch the world go by.

Whether you’re walking the dog, cycling or simply strolling along our 22 miles of coastline, it's the perfect way to work off a delicious lunch. For a more adventurous option, why not hop in a kayak, listen to the lapping of the waves and disconnect in true tranquillity whilst you paddle into the afternoon at Crosby Lakeside Advenutre Centre.

Kick back and enjoy your evening...

In the evening kick back and relax in one of our many traditional pubs, wine, gin or rum bars - it’s your choice!

World-class culture on your doorstep, spend your evening at The Waterfront. From live performances to casinos, panto to comedy nights, there’s something for everyone this spring.
