Southport’s attractions include a Grade II listed pleasure pier with its own tramcar and a sparkling seafront marine lake whilst the pretty promenade is home to King’s Gardens. Away from the waterfront, Southport’s botanic gardens offer a plethora of pathways to explore. For retail therapy, refined Lord Street is the epitome of elegant shopping whilst the quirky British Lawnmower Museum promises a unique experience.
St Annes is a classic resort with floral gardens, rolling sand dunes, beautifully restored Victorian pier, boating lakes and a charming promenade. Perhaps visit the historic windmill on Lytham Green, the Heritage Centre or the fine Georgian House of Lytham Hall which is set in parkland and has a pleasant tearoom. Maybe you’d like to head to Fairhaven Lake to hire a rowing boat and play a game of crazy golf or relax in Ashton Gardens where you’ll be enchanted by the ornate grounds and tumbling waterfalls
