The best accessible days out in the north west

Southport Pier, Merseyside

Southport Pier, Merseyside
Southport Pier, Merseyside

Southport is home to the oldest iron pier in the country, which has been a feature of the town’s coastline for more than 150 years, stretching two thirds of a mile out to sea. Along its length are fish and chips, ice cream and candy floss stalls. There’s also an old-fashioned penny arcade which uses large old penny pieces in its slot machines, and a modern day interactive display about local nature and wildlife.

A tram runs the full length of the pier every 10 minutes. It has space for wheelchairs and powered scooters and there is a café at the far end – the perfect spot to soak up the fresh sea air, looking out towards the Irish Sea or landward across 22 miles of unspoiled coastline.
