Escape this Summer

Head to Southport and recharge your batteries and escape the day to day. There’s a whole host of unforgettable experiences, unmissable events and gastronomic delights awaiting you, as well as something that little bit different!

Imagine a town full of culture, art, history and heritage, combined with independent shops and boutique establishments, plus a whole host of cosy bistros and pubs where you can sample some of Southport’s finest food and drink. 

Come and discover the best of Southport, which will leave you relaxed, enthralled and itching to come back to explore something different every time.

We have put together itineraries to take the hassle away from you. Whether you are here for a day or more, we can give you ideas of how to spend your time.

Day 1

Morning

Jump in the car or hop on the train and head to Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre where you can try out some watersports - sail, paddle, windsurf or powerboat  - let the outdoors blow the cobwebs away and enjoy the adrenaline kick from the watersports.

Have a spot of brunch overlooking the lake at the Lakeside Bistro before heading to Crosby beach to see the 100 iron men installation - Another Place by Antony Gormley.

Afternoon

After lunch head off 15 minutes along the coast, to Formby to enjoy a walk through the pinewoods and dunes and take half hour out to embrace the coastal views at Formby beach.

On to Southport where you can pick up your bike from one of the cycle hires and take a ride along the promenade. Once you have done this you can sit outside with a beer or a G & T and do some people-watching on Southport’s Lord Street.

Or if you prefer something more relaxing, grab an ice cream, kick back and listen to the waves lapping on the beach... we have so many flavours here in Southport!

Evening

How about The Hungry Monk Ale House & Kitchen, perfect for an evening meal after an action packed day?

This one is for those of you over 18! Peaky Blinders bar is based on the popular TV series and is a perfect place for a drink with friends, whether you're a fan of the show or not! It has an impressive 15 draught beers and a huge bottled beer selection.

If you’re wanting party into the night there are plenty of bars where you can dance the night away, and Southport has its very own casino!

Day 2

Morning

So now it is time to chill! Start the day with Southport's Maple & Pancake breakfast ice cream and then walk it off with a refreshing stroll down the Pier - blow the cobwebs away, sit in the morning sunshine and escape the world.

Jump in the car and head to Formby Hall Golf Resort & Spa where you can spend the entire day relaxing.

If you want to stay closer the Royal Clifton Hotel & Spa and The Vincent Hotel have spa facilities for that ultimate chill!

Evening

And after a day of relaxing take time to really enjoy the coast at The Waterfront - you can eat overlooking Marine Lake and enjoy a drink on their roof top bar.

Whatever you fancy, whatever your flavour - Southport has it all!
