Southport Pleasureland


The park is free to enter. We operate a Fun Card system for use on rides. These can be purchased from token boxes/kiosks on site. Purchase a Fun Card and load it with credit to use on rides. Fun Cards can be used repeatedly throughout our current season, topped up as necessary. See website for details of how to purchase Fun Cards in advance and special offers for advance purchases. Rides are from £1 to £4.


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.

With unlimited rides all day for a single admission price, the park offers great value for money.  There’s also a non-rider option for those who just want to take it easy.  And Children under 90cm can enjoy all the fun for free!

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.
