About

Pleasureland is Southport's premier attraction for families looking for a wonderful place to go.  There’s a fun mix of rides and amusements set around a park that’s family friendly, clean as a whistle and blooming with hanging baskets and flower beds.

The park is free to enter for everybody. Pleasureland operates a Funcard system to get on the rides. This allows you to set your child’s (or your) budget for the day, and puts them in control of how they spend it. Funcards are valid throughout the season in which they are purchased and can be topped up with credits at various locations within the park

It offers families a mix of thrilling roller coasters, a log flumes and firm family favourites like the dodgems and waltzers, plus loads of rides designed for younger visitors. On the stalls you can test your luck on the Arabian Derby, Hook a Duck or Penalty Shoot Out.  There are several food and drink outlets to cater to all tastes, but you’re also welcome to take your own picnic and enjoy it at one of the many landscaped seating areas throughout the site.   Southport Pleasureland also welcomes well behaved dogs on leads, so your four legged friends can join in the family day out!  You’ll find dog water bowls and shaded areas around the park. 

There is also an Arena area with its own dedicated bar and toilet block which is perfect for hiring for events.

At Pleasureland you will also find a land train that can take you from the entrance of Pleasureland out to the Pier in Southport, and also a miniature railway – it is in fact the oldest continuously running 15-inch gauge railway in the world. And if you have a caravan or camper there is overnight parking available on their Touring Park.

      This Fairground has a lot more on the inside than is obvious from the outside. The rides are well spaced and not all on top of each other. You buy a band that holds your credits. Read full review
