A Classic Town
The resort caters for all ages and is renowned for its quality hotels and accommodation. It boasts an extensive year-round events programme, great attractions, plenty of things to do and a mouth-watering array of restaurants.
One of Southport’s most celebrated sights is Lord Street, a Victorian canopied boulevard edged in scenic gardens. With a charming, unique style all of its own, Lord Street is home to a wide selection of tea rooms, coffee shops and eateries and has been a much loved favourite shopping destination for over a century.
Speciality shops and designer boutiques are just a stones throw from the street’s picturesque and leafy gardens – the ideal place to unwind whilst still in the hub of the town. Right at Lord Street’s heart is Wayfarers Shopping Arcade, open since 1898. This Grade II listed building boasts a stunning glass-domed roof, impressive period décor and a range of over 30 exclusive stores. Their café and restaurant offer the perfect setting to soak up the Arcade’s atmosphere and enjoy the unique charm of Lord Street.
Southport is at the northern end of over 20 miles of beautiful unspoilt coastline with one of Britain’s extensive and wildlife rich sand dunes for you to explore. Just perfect for you to relax and unwind.
Southport is widely regarded as the undisputed capital of England’s Golf Coast with over twenty courses including the 3 Royals (including regular Open championship venue Royal Birkdale) all reached in under an hour.
Add to this a vibrant and exciting night-life, some of the most scenic parks and gardens you’re ever likely to visit and you’ll appreciate why Southport is indeed England’s Classic Resort.
