Top 10 Walks

Sefton proudly sits on 22 miles of coast and walking is the best way to see much of Southport and the wider area – you can get to the parts of the coast and countryside that are not accessible by car. Why not try one of our walks and experience some stunning scenery, rolling dunes and blow the cobwebs away? Choose one that you’d like to do and put those walking boots on!
