Sunny Southport is the ideal location for a UK break

Jun 22

Southport has spent many years in Blackpool’s shadow, but following a marketing campaign it has re-branded itself as “England’s Classic Resort” and become known as more upmarket coastal destination.

Whatever you’re wanting from your seaside break, Southport has it all. Southport Beach is located just a short walk away from the town centre and has a Pier with Victorian arcade machines, and the town is about a 20 minute drive away from Formby with its pine woods and sand dunes,

Southport is also well known for its golf. The Royal Birkdale has hosted the Open on a number of occasions and there are also courses in town centre.

If you love to shop, the resort has plenty of shops, from high street names to smaller boutique shops, with a number of them located on the charming Lord Street. Lord Street is said to have been the inspiration for the boulevards of Paris after a visit to the town by Napoleon.

In the evening, there are plenty of restaurants to visit and a number of bars and pubs where you can enjoy a drink to round off your day in sunny Southport.
