There are 22 miles of beach along Southport's coastline although you don't have to walk it all to find pavement cafes, tree-lined promenades and shopping in the glass-canopied shops of Lord Street.
With plenty to do in the day including the Model Village, Southport Zoo, Aquarium, Railway Centres and the Southport Belle Paddle Steamer, don't forget to save some energy for the evening when the town comes alive with bars, clubs and a casino.
Southport also has a traditional seaside pier.
