General

  • Close to the beaches and dunes of Southport
  • Within easy reach of Liverpool and Blackpool; bus outside to Southport
  • Licensed shop, 80 acres to wander and indoor heated pool with spa

If you want to get to the beach from Riverside Holiday Park in Merseyside, just jump on the bus... Directly in front of the park is a bus stop with a daily half hour service straight into Southport – step off bus, find sands and sand dunes, spread blanket on sand, sorted. (You might also like to hear about the very lengthy pier at Southport too.)

And if you want to get to the museums and nightlife from Riverside Holiday Park, also jump on the bus: just across the road from the park is another bus stop with well-priced day tickets to the sights of Liverpool – step off bus, find museums, find nice old pub, sorted.

For the days mooching about on site in between beach bathing and city sightseeing, Riverside has 80 acres to wander over as well as a stream of facilities to investigate: a heated indoor pool with spa open from March to November; fishing on site (bring your rod licence); and the Riverside Bar and Cafe from which to contentedly contemplate the countryside.

There's also an modern play area for the kids (plus plenty of places for them to run around), a licensed shop, a launderette and a large area for exercising dogs. The toilet and shower blocks are centrally heated with free hot water, disabled facilities and baby changing.

    Disliked: 

    None, I have seen that some visitors have mentioned the potholes, we saw a few I think they are further down the park, but they are re-surfacing the roads so I think shortly they will be a thing of the past.

Local attractions

The Victorian town of Southport has been one of the most popular seaside destinations in the UK since the times of Queen Vic, when the population decided seaside holidays in the region were the way to go.

Highlights include the smashing sand dunes, which roll out all the way between Birkdale and Woodvale to the south – part of the dunes are a National Nature Reserve and the keen-eyed should see sand lizards and Natterjack toads.

In town, take a promenade or tram ride along Southport Pier, one of the longest in the country, then wander regally around the shops of tree-lined Lord Street – and did you know that Napoleon 3 once lived here...?

Southport's lovely Victoria Park is the venue of both the Southport Flower Show and the intriguing-sounding British Musical Fireworks Championships: if you're not around in August (for flowers) or October (for fireworks), roll along to the two bowling greens or the picnic spots aplenty. If it's a family theme you're after, you can go bowling, spend the day at Splash World or visit the theme park Pleasure Land and its rides to suit all ages.

Golfers go here too: Southport is the centre of England's 'Golf Coast' and home of Royal Birkdale Golf Club, once host to the Open Championship – several other courses are within 15 minutes' drive of town, so bring your clubs.

The Ribble Estuary edges Southport to the north and is very much worth a wander for wildlife fans, as it has a big wildfowl population in winter and is also a National Nature Reserve. Also nearby for nature lovers, the WWT's site at Marton Mere is fab for families with its play area and child-friendly events like den building, pond dipping, arts and crafts and canoe safaris.

And finally, take time in Liverpool, for attractions like the Museum of Liverpool and International Slavery Museum, the Beatles Museum, and the pubs and clubs around Concert Square and Mathew Street.

Must see

  • WWT Martin Mere Wetland Centre (3.4 miles)
  • Camelot Theme Park (8.7 miles)
  • Forest of Bowland (9.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Rufford Old Hall (4.1 miles)
  • Formby (10.3 miles)
