About Southport

Looking for more than just shopping in Southport?  Make a day (or weekend!) of it with miles of coast, amazing restaurants, stunning hotels and so much more. 

Set on the beautiful Sefton coastline, Southport is the perfect blend of Victorian charm, wide open beaches, countryside and modern shops, bars and restaurants.  Perfect for those looking for a quiet get away to families looking for space and adventure, Southport is easy to get to from across the North West. 

Time to escape

Escape the hustle and bustle of Southport's big city neighbours and be surprised by what's on offer.  Surrounded by natural beauty, Southport is a great place to get away from it all and enjoy big skies and stunning sunsets.  Compliment a day's shopping with a day in the National Trust's Formby Pinewoods or exploring Formby and Ainsdale Dunes.  Follow the many cycle routes along the coast or end your day watching the sunset from the end of the pier.

Time to be entertained

Keep the whole family happy and plan your shopping trip to coincide one of Southport's many superb events.   The season starts in style with Southport Festival when art, music and dance spill out in to the streets! The summer sees Southport bloom and soar with the Flower ShowFood and Drink Festival and the award-winning Airshow.  

The sun doesn't stop once Autumn comes around, with the spectacular British Musical Firework Championships lighting up the skyline.  There are big laughs with the Comedy Festival in venues throughout Southport and things get a little spookier during October half-term with Southport Halloween Festival.  Four days of monstrous half term fun for all the family throughout town. 

Christmas in Southport really begins with the Big Switch on - this year on the 18th November.  With a huge stage show and entertainment on all afternoon it is the perfect way to kick the shopping season off.

Southport also boasts all manner of year round attractions from the fun of the fair at the Pleasureland to theatre and culture for all at The Atkinson.

Time to stay

With so much to see and do, how can you possibly just shop and go?  Make a trip of it with a stay on one of Southport's luxurious guest houses and hotels or end the day with a meal and a cocktail in one of Southport's superb independent bars or restaurants?

With so much to see and do why go anywhere else?
