About

Are you looking for something new to entertain the family on your next visit to Southport? Our lovely friends are Southport Townscape Heritage Project have created their first family trail and it's a good 'un!

This brilliant walking trail is just perfect for budding explorers and history hunters. Starting and finishing on Lord Street, it's about a mile long and takes in everything from Victorian architecture to modern street art - with a host of fun activities along the way!

Designed to encourage young visitors to really engage with the town's landmarks, this is an inspiring and informative trail that will have you spotting the fascinating features of some of Southport's most iconic landmarks.

 

The trail is best printed at A3 that size unless you’re super keen-eyed with tiny handwriting. We’re working on a version set up as two A4s, but in the meantime you might be able to set up your printer to do this. Or try your local library for A3 printing. Alternatively you can follow the trail on a phone or handheld device, and use a pencil and drawing pad to complete the activities.
