Play Time this Summer

Head to Southport and recharge your batteries, time to 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.

Morning

Arrive in Southport and check into your boutique hotel or B&B. Then take some time exploring the independent shops along the iconic Lord Street before enjoying some lunch in one of the town’s many restaurants or café bars.

When the sun shines, sit outside with a beer or a G & T and do some people-watching on Southport’s historic Lord Street.

Lunch

After lunch pick up your bike from one of the cycle hires and head off, half an hour along the coast, to Formby to enjoy a walk through the pinewoods and dunes - and maybe indulge in a spot of kite-surfing.

A little further down is Crosby Lakeside Adventure Centre where you can really get an adreneline kick from the watersports.

Or if you prefer something more relaxing, grab  an ice cream, kick back and listen to the waves lapping on the beach...

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 your 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 it's very own casino!
