Southport has served as a resort and vacation spot for over 200 years and some of the grand structures of the Victorian era still stand. Established as a resort in 1792 when William Sutton opened a hotel on the seaside, Southport has attracted vacationers and distinguished guests since at least Elizabethan times. Shakespeare is reputed to have performed at Rufford Old Hall. Pleasureland, Marine Lake, and the Southport Pier all offer the visitor entertainment and diversion. Auto Europe offers several pick up locations, like the Southport Railway Station, so finding a car rental is both easy and economical.
Shopping on Lord Street, walking on the Pier, boating on the Marine Lake or enjoying the attractions and rides at Pleasureland, Southport is the quintessential resort town. The town is on the shore of the Irish Sea and has long been popular with bathers, beachcombers and sun worshippers. The tide is so long you may be tempted to rent a car to drive to the water when the tide is out, but be careful, the sand is soft and you wouldn't want to have to explain why there's seaweed in the back seat. For something completely different, visit the British Lawnmower Museum documenting the history of lawn care. Here you can view such attractions as Princess Diana's lawnmower, a hovering lawnmower and early powered lawnmowers. For those interested in more contemporary history, Liverpool, home of the Beatles, is a short drive from town in a rental car. Questions about driving in Southport?
