Southport in Merseyside in the North West sits on the Sefton coast within easy reach of both Liverpool and Manchester. An escape from the bigger cities, Southport has a distinctive coastal ‘get away’ feel. It benefits from being in a beautiful area, and this is enhanced through things such as the Anthony Gormley art installation of 100 men made out of iron staring out to sea.
The beaches in and around Southport attract those looking to unwind through an array of adventurous activities including kite surfing and family friendly opportunities. Fun is also to be had on the pier. Southport is also well known for two big events: the Southport Air Show and the British Musical Fireworks Championship.
