Southport The Essential
Strikingly different from neighbouring Blackpool, Southport is a charming resort with tree-lined streets, attractive flowerbeds and famous gardens. Lord Street is elegant and spacious, the epitome of a Victorian promenade with its wrought-iron canopies and glass-roofed arcades. Children enjoy Southport's long beach and amusement parks. Golf enthusiasts are also drawn to the town by its numerous golf courses, including Royal Birkdale.
