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.

    Extremely disappointed with our visit, a tea, a coffee and 2 small pieces of cake left no change from £10. We had to wipe the table free of sugar and crumbs before we could sit down and the windows... Read full review

    We loved our walk down the pier. Had great views, buildings well kept. Floor boards could do with a bit of work. Was a shame we walked all the way down and the cafe at the bottom was shut an hour... Read full review
