About

The second longest pier in Britain, Southport Pier was first opened in 1860 with an original length of 3,600 ft. In 1868 it was further extended to 4,380 ft.

Southport pier has had several setbacks in its history, suffering from colissions, gales, and fire but none were as close to detroying the pier as in 1990 when Sefton Council applied to have it demoslished, only to be defeated by a single vote.

Now a Grade II listed structure, Southport Pier, under the Southport Pier Trust gained sufficient funding to totally redevelop the pier with financing from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the European Merseyside Objective.

The pier now it stands atr 3,650 ft in length and is open every day except Christmas Day. A boxing day stroll down the pier is actually quite a tradition in Southport.

      If you want a nice pleasant walk on a flat environment with more sand than you could imagine3 at the other end then this is for you. Alternatively you could get the train that run all the time. Read full review

      what an amazing pier, you can walk to the end and still not see the sea, plenty of benches along the way for a rest or get the train for £4 return, at the end more seats, a cafe and an old penny... Read full review
