And if you don’t want to skate you can keep yourself warm with some festive food or the perfect winter tipple in our winter chalets whilst watching the skating and enjoying the twinkly Christmas lights along Lord Street and The Atkinson.

Skate beneath the 60-foot digital Christmas tree which changes colour or take a look inside and witness its magical light show, making this a truly unique experience and the first ever for Southport at Christmas time.

Merseyrail and Northern operate fast and frequent trains to Manchester and Liverpool so you can easily escape the big city life and be in Southport train station in very little time. Southport ice skating rink is a quick 5 minutes walk away and located on the Town Hall Gardens by Remedy and El Rincon Bodega and in front of The Atkinson. 

After ice skating enjoy a meal in one of our local restaurants who serve excellent quality food made with local produce and have some great offers for Christmas.

Or have a wander around our independent shops and High Street favourites for that unique last-minute Christmas gift - visit our Shopping in Southport website for up to date offers, news and a full directory.

And if you really want to make your experience magical, book an overnight stay and fully embrace the tranquil coast of Southport this Christmas.
