Get a spring in your step in Southport! Let’s make plans!

The Easter holidays are the perfect time for a family break in our favourite seaside town, there’s always lots to see and do, whatever the weather!

Southport attractions are the perfect place for the kids to let off some steam. You can scream with delight in Southport Pleasureland, play a spot of crazy golf, burn off energy on the adventure playground in King's Gardens, or go on an nature trail and see if they can spot the Natterjack toad!

Come and explore while the kids are off. You can take a trip to the Marine Lake and whizz along in the motor boats, head into the pine woods and see if you can find a red squirrel, or to one of your favourite hidden gems in Southport.

Listen - it sounds like spring! You can hear the birds singing in the parks and gardens. Southport has plenty of outdoor spaces where you can enjoy the warmer weather.

It’s a great place for the kids to let loose, sliding down the dunes and giving the dog a good run along the beach. Or grab your bikes and head along the coastline - It’s that time of year again!

And if we get typically British weather, then there’s plenty of fun still to be had in Southport. You can take a trip to The Atkinson, where there’s always lots to entertain your little ones.
