Welcome to Southport’s Family Friendly Trail
Southport was one of North West England’s earliest seaside resorts. It all started over 200 years ago when people began to bathe in the sea.There’s a lot for families to see and do here today, and plenty of reminders of Old Southport if you know where to look.
Follow the trail and see what you can discover- you’ll be given some tasks along the way!
There are 12 short audio points on this tour, which are located on your map. Stand at the relevant points and play the audio.
You can follow the entire trail route starting at “Lord Street”.Or you can choose to follow it as two shorter trails – the Lord Street Trail between “Lord Street” and “Statue of Queen Victoria”, or the Marine Trail between the “Victoria Baths” and “Venetian Bridge”.
There is car parking at the Eco Centre where you can take the “park and ride” bus into town. There is also parking near the railway station, or just leave the car behind and come by train.
