The large seaside town of Southport is one of the UK’s most popular summer resorts. Historically part of Lancashire, the town was founded in 1792 when William Sutton built a bathhouse at what is now the south end of Lord Street. Southport became a favourite tourist haunt at the turn of the 19th century, with attractions such as the Southport Pier and its tramway, the second longest seaside pleasure pier in the British Isles and Lord Street, an elegant tree-lined shopping destination which was once the home of Napoleon III of France. Featuring quirky galleries, an old theatre, plus new attractions like The Atkinson, there is plenty to see and do for all ages in Southport.
