Places to eat & drink in Southport.

Don't be fooled into thinking that Southport is merely a seaside resort; while it possesses a genuine charm this is in stark contrast to some of its main attractions, which include a top-rated casino and a white-knuckle amusement park.

A place for eclectic tastes, it has been described as the 'Paris of the North' and each year hosts a series of international events ranging from the famous Southport Flower Show to an air show and an annual jazz festival. It is also home to several world-class golf courses - including Royal Birkdale - and is one of the country's leading conference centres.

Thanks to ever-retreating seas, this placid seaside town not only boasts one of Britain's widest beaches but also possesses the country's second longest pier – refurbished at a cost of £7 million – and a new pavilion. Lord Street, with its arcades, fountains and gardens offers a continental-style shopping experience and reputedly influenced the design of the Champs Elysee.

The town came to the fore in the late 18th century when an innkeeper built the first bathing house on the sands and started a tourist boom. When a railway from Liverpool was built in the early 19th century sand dunes were reclaimed for housing and modern-day Southport began to take shape.

Southport has a huge Victorian boating lake and a number of sumptuous gardens - its Botanic Gardens are world-famous. Nearby places of interest include the National Trust's red squirrel reserve, the West Lancashire Light Railway, the Southport model railway and, curiously, the British Lawnmower Museum; one of its exhibits is Prince Charles and Princess Diana's old mower!

A key centre for golfers, the town boasts a number of 18-hole courses including Royal Birkdale.
