The seaside town of Southport is defined by its golden shoreline, where stretches of sandy beaches merge with the cool Irish Sea, enticing the locals and tourists alike who all want a piece of this traditionally British pie.
Home to the oldest iron pier in the country, Southport is a town that has long held the secret of understanding how to entertain locals in the most simplistically whimsical of ways. The pier, which still stands strong after over one-hundred-and-fifty-years, continues to delight all those who take to its ancient structure, transporting them from the promenade right into the doorway of the Irish Sea.
The beach plays host to an array of events throughout the year, including the world famous Southport Air Show. For over twenty-five years, thousands of spectators take to the coast to watch as an array of aircraft take to the sky to perform breathtaking stunts and displays. From military aircraft to classic jets, guests can watch as their favourite aircraft fly overhead including the Red Arrows, Eurofighter Typhoon and the Vulcan XH558.
Integrating the past with the present, the Ocean Plaza meets with the beachfront, allowing locals to enjoy the best of both worlds, perfect for Southport's eclectic mix of residents. From bars, restaurants and shops to entertainment complexes, this new addition to Southport has brought a new cosmopolitan dimension to a town which is steeped in much-loved tradition.
