Beyond Southport

Time to escape the big city

Southport is located on the North West coastline, in between Liverpool and Manchester it is an ideal place to stay if you still want the buzz of the big city but tranquility of the coast.


By train, Liverpool is less than one hour away and Southport train station is in the Town Centre. With most places accessible by foot you will never be too far away from where you are staying in Southport. You can spend the day sightseeing in Liverpool and hop back on the train to Southport.


Along the way you could also stop and see the art installation by Antony Gormley ‘Another Place’ at Crosby or top off at Formby Pine Woods to see the Red Squirrels and go for a walk through the pine woods.


And if you're feeling energetic why don't you take one of our walking or cycling routes which explore Southport and beyond by bike or foot. You can even hire bikes at the train station so you can take the train there and cycle back.


On a sunny day you can jump the train to Formby beach the views are breathtaking, the dunes are to be explored and the sand is like the caribbean!


Hope in the car to nearby Martin Mere Wildfowl and Wetlands and next door to Windmill Animal Farm, only 20 minutes away from enjoying the outdoors of a working farm, wildlife and birds.


Or entertain the kids more at Farmer Teds where there are farm animals to feed, tractors to ride and a huge play area with a cafe, again only 15-20 minutes away.


The Courtyard in Tarleton is worth a trip to, a warm traditional welcome awaits range of shops and food. You could spend the afternoon and then head back to Southport for the evening.


Southport is ideally located for you to not enjoy the coast but explore the region and beyond.
