In Southport, you’re never stuck for things to do. If you need a budget-friendly free day out we’ve got plenty of parks and gardens, great places to walk or take a cycle ride on one of our cycle routes, and of course several stunning beaches. Southport is a great place to spend your afternoon.

Southport's Victoria Park is a great place to take a picnic and is host to some great events throughout the year. Or try our beautiful Botanic Gardens, or King's Gardens, where a sunny afternoon feels like a summer holiday.

For fun family days out, your kids will love Southport Pleasureland, or spend the day at Southport Marine Lake where they can speed along on a motor boat, or enjoy a slower pace on one of the Swan Pedalos.

If you’re after a catch-up with friends, there’s Birkdale Village, Churchtown, and several other spots for shopping, tearooms, restaurants in Southport, and The Atkinson for culture vultures. For excitement, join us for one of our spectacular year-round events, Southport Air Show is definitely one not to be missed!.

If you love to shop ‘til you drop then we have so many independent shops in the nooks and crannies around the town, and some big retail parks for the High Street stores. You then rest your feet in one of our restaurants, bars or pubs after. Foodies will enjoy Southport Market where we’ve got lots of yummy street food. We’re full of places to eat, drink, and relax in Southport.
