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.

    A good view is available here, worth walking to if you're in Southport. I am sure i will come back as restaurants close by too. Read full review

    One mile long (apparently) and famous for hardly being able to see the sea even when you have walked to the end of it.

    This pier does have a reputation that you can walk to the end of it and still can't see the sea, but if you search to the West with binoculars you can see a man standing in the far distance who has... Read full review
