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.

    As a family we walked to the end of the pier. Lovely little walk. The tide was out and the sun was beaming. As you walk down there are small cafes and ice cream shops. Read full review

    Loved walking along the pier. The view across the ‘beach’ was spectacular. It is a beach but has deep mud and a long walk out to sea. Think Weston and double the distance for when the sea is out... Read full review
