From sandhills to seaside town! Southport’s streets and buildings keep changing, trying to keep up with ever changing times. Southport today is the result of its sandy underpinnings and 230 years of people’s wishes and lifestyles.

Jump into the past on a giant map. Explore the ways the town has changed in old photos and paintings. Then head out onto the streets to look up at Southport’s surprisingly varied buildings today.

This exhibition is part of the Southport Townscape Heritage Project, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund to restore the heritage of key streets.
