Mini guide to Southport


The elegant seaside resort of Southport lies 13 miles north of Liverpool on the North West coast. Mixing the grandeur of Victorian architecture with the excitement of a lively nightlife and blessed with six miles of sandy beaches, Southport has been popular since the Victorian times. Like then, it still attracts many weekend day-trippers.

Widely acknowledged as England's golfing capital, the town boasts four championship-standard golf courses including the world famous Royal Birkdale course. It also includes an art gallery, botanical gardens, a seafront promenade, a pier, parks, a boating lake and many other attractions.

Southport's local and natural history is documented in the Botanic Gardens Museum while the Steamport Transport Museum is devoted to historic trains, trams and buses. Art lovers will find a fine collection of 19th and 20th century paintings in the Atkinson Art Gallery.

Seven miles south is Formby Point, a wonderful stretch of unspoilt coastline made up of rolling sand dunes and attractive pine woods set between the sea and Formby town. There are interesting plants and birds to be found, and this is one of the last places in England where visitors may catch a glimpse of the rare red squirrel.

Southport is less than an hour away from Blackpool, Manchester and Chester, making it an ideal base from which to explore England's Northwest. Liverpool - European Capital of Culture 2008 - is just 13 miles away.

There are a number of ways to get to Southport making it easily accessible. If you are travelling by car, take the M6 motorway to Junction 26, then take the M58 motorway to Ormskirk and then the A570 to Southport. Alternatively Virgin Trains operate a fast and frequent service from London Euston to Wigan from where can take a connecting service direct to Southport.
