Manchester

Just over an hour away by car and train is the city of Manchester, bursting with character and a thriving music scene; it is a great place for a day trip when staying in Southport.

Many bands have emerged from Manchester, including Oasis, The Smiths, Simply Red and Take That – music is in their blood and with the largest arena of its kind in Europe, Manchester Arena, if you are looking for a place to stay after a gig, Southport could be the ideal place for you.

Manchester has a proud history of science, politics, music, arts and sport. It has an interesting mix of unique restaurants opening weekly and plenty of bars around its quickly becoming known as a foodie destination.

A huge football city, like nearby Liverpool, Manchester is home to Manchester City and Manchester United and also home to the National Football Museum. If you are visiting to watch a football match or do a ground tour why not use Southport as your base.

There are lots of things for kids to do including the Legoland Discovery Centre and The Museum of Science and Industry, so if you are on a short break you can explore beyond Southport with the family and come back to the tranquillity of the seaside

If you are visiting one of their many events and festivals such as the Manchester International Festival, then why not stay in Southport? You can book a hotel or bed and breakfast in Southport and get to Manchester frequently from Southport train station.

Or take the challenge of TV favourite The Crystal Maze with friends and get an apartment in Southport big enough for you all to stay and enjoy the coast.

Whether it is a gig in the Manchester Arena or a football match at Old Trafford, make the coast your base and book your accommodation in Southport here.
