Why Southport

Picturesque, elegant and rich in heritage, Southport has always been a bustling hub of Culture bringing the likes of Marlene Dietrich, Pink Floyd and The Beatles to the stage of The Floral Hall and welcoming generations of families to its beaches and parks for holidays they cherish forever. A little slice of paradise, nestled in a 22 mile stretch of stunning coastline close to Liverpool and Manchester, Southport has a magic and we’re under its spell.

Lord Street

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 has been a 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.
