Come and spend a day in beautiful Southport. This classic seaside resort has scenic parks and gardens, fabulous shopping, traditional seaside amusements and the oldest UK iron pier. Try the old penny slot machines in the pavilion at the end of the pier or ride the traditional carousels. Once there, discover Lord Street, a tree-lined Victorian boulevard that is home to shops, restaurants and quaint tearooms, as well as the grand Wayfarers Arcade with its glass and iron domed roof. Stroll along Southport’s pier, the country’s oldest iron pier, then explore the beach and take a boat trip on Marine Lake, the UK’s largest man-made leisure lake. With a great choice of restaurants, three theatres, a museum and an art gallery, there’s plenty to keep you entertained.
