Southport

SouthportThe seaside town of Southport, with its tree-lined boulevards, traditional shopping arcades and unspoilt beaches.

Take a stroll around the town and soak up the atmosphere in this popular resort where you’ll find the UK’s oldest iron pier. Today, Southport Pier is a much-visited attraction where you can step back in time, have fun in the vintage arcade or simply relax and enjoy the views. 

Discover the stunning coastline, visiting some of the many beaches. You'll be able to see plenty of wildlife, along with the largest area of wild dunes in Britain.  Described as the floral capital of the North West, Southport is home to beautiful parks and gardens, with spectacular flower displays, open green spaces and Victorian features. 

Visit Southport’s Botanic Gardens and marvel at the floral splendour and the lake winding through it. Admire the themed gardens and ornate fountains at Hesketh Park, a 12-hectare Victorian park, designed by Edward Kemp in the 19th century. 

For those that love a bit of retail therapy, Southport is the perfect destination. It has well-known high street stores, independent boutiques and Victorian shopping arcades. You can also watch the world go by with a drink in one of the pavement cafés.  

The Lake District

The Lake District

A unique tapestry of mountains, lakes & tarns
The Lake District is England's largest National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site AND home to the highest mountain (Scafell Pike), longest lake (Windermere) and deepest lake in the country (Wastwater). The national park’s unique landscape is the product of geographical processes over the last 500 million years.

You might have noticed that it rains a lot here. This, combined with extra deep glacial valleys and volcanic rock that doesn’t allow the water to seep away, is the reason there are so many lakes and tarns.

An unrivalled list of things to see & do
Dotted around this peaceful - and photogenic part of the world are many historic towns and villages, vast farmland, ancient dry-stone walls, and so much more. If you’re heading here for an adventure or to get back to nature - you can walk, hike, hire a boat, camp.. the list is unrivalled.

If you like to eat and drink, there are many cosy pubs to treat yourself to a locally distilled beer (or something stronger), and if you want to stock up on local delicacies or gifts for loved ones, there are countless quaint little shops.

Don’t miss - If you haven’t already, try Kendal Mint Cake, a locally made energy-boosting snack enjoyed by hikers worldwide!
