Highlights

  1. The character of Lord Street and the resort however was established during and after the 1840’s with the policy of the new landlords, especially Charles Scarisbrick, of encouraging planned residential development. The trail begins at the centre of Lord Street in the magnificent London Square. The architectural style of this imposing centrepiece is essentially classical, yet with the exception of the National Westminster Bank, the buildings are all twentieth century.
  2. Not ony does Southport have 22 miles of coast it also boasts a Grade II listed pier on Southport Beach.
