The Ultimate Camping Day Out in Southport

If you’re looking to take a visit to Abbey Farm – a caravan park near Southport – you’re going to want all the details on the nearby attractions to check out with the family, right? We’ve covered some of the big towns surrounding Ormskirk’s Abbey Farm, so now it’s time for seaside town Southport.

Southport has been delighting visitors of our caravan park for years, with its old-timely charms and ample activities for kids. Whether you prefer a more relaxed day perusing the quirky trinket shops, or want to get your adrenaline fill at the Southport Pleasureland; this lovely little town will tick boxes for your entire family.

Here are our top 5 attractions to check out on your visit to Southport when staying with us here at Abbey Farm Caravan Park:


  1. New Pleasureland Southport

Are your kids a little older this camping trip, looking for their next excitement and adventure hit? Southport’s Pleasureland features some regionally-relevant rides like the Beatles-inspired Yellow Submarine, then the family can cool off from the summer heat on everybody’s favourite: The Log Flume.

With seasonal events throughout, there’s always something to entertain the family and ensure you’re really getting the best out of your visit. P.s. Buy a VIP Funcard before you visit for £25 for unlimited rides, saving you £10 from buying on the day!


  1. Boating

There’s nothing quite like letting the nearby sea breeze through your hair, whipping around in a nifty little boat on a summer’s day – just look out for the swans! For less than £20 for the whole family, you can while away a good half hour and then pop off to the promenade for a picnic.


  1. The Amusements

We don’t think anyone grows out of the amusements. No matter how old you are, that challenge of winning a stuffed toy from the machines – whether it’s for your love or your little one – is always too tempting to pass up on. With the flashy lights, gaudy music and a nod to simpler times, Southport’s amusements are a no-brainer on the to-visit list.


  1. Food Perks

With its offerings of amusements and olde-worlde sweet shops, Southport is equally good at serving up traditional seaside town food. With some of the best fish and chips in the region, and more artisan ice creams shops than you can shake a stick (of rock) at; Southport is a delightful return to childhood for the palette.


  1. Dunes Splash World

Whilst it isn’t quite Blackpool’s Sandcastle (which, itself, is only just under an hour away from us here at Abbey Farm Caravan Park), Southport’s Dunes Splash World is perfect for letting the little ones let off some steam and get splash-happy. With reasonable prices and the promise of guaranteed fun whatever the weather, we’d highly recommend on a rainy day.
