Experience Southport

Immerse yourself and feel your senses come alive with enriching and cultural experiences. Explore Southport's culture and natural beauty and learn from the landscape - 22 miles of it to explore!

There’s no shortage of family activities during a stay in Southport, you’ll always find something happening that will create days to remember.

Whatever your flavour - Southport has it all!

Morning

Start early and head straight to Southport Marine Lake for some water activities - all of the family can enjoy a ride on a speedboat along the lake, or a much gentle swan pedalo!

Hire some bikes and ride down the seafront, you will no doubt be able to spot various species nestled amongst the marsh land or stop off and let the kids explore the wildlife in the Dunes that line the coast!

Afternoon

Enjoy a spot of lunch on the pier at the Pavilion Cafe at the end - the views are amazing and worth the walk (or if there are smaller tired legs hop on the train!). As well as a cafe for a much needed pit stop, they also sell plenty of ice cream plus our Southport Foam Shrimp ice cream - give it a try!

Not too far away is Martin Mere Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust - enjoy the play area, cafe and Giant Bionic Bugs through the summer - you can easily spend the entire afternoon exploring!

Evening

Head over to Ocean Plaza where there are plenty of family restaurants to make sure the hungry tummies are fed. Pasta, pizza, Mexican, American or pub food - there is plenty of choice!

Head back to the hotel via the promenade and watch the sunset - let the kids run off their last bit of energy along the sea wall whilst you sit back and take the world in.

However you want to spend your day we have it all for you!
