Trains to Southport

The first Southport station was built at the Chapel Street site in 1851, welcoming passengers from Manchester to the growing seaside resort on the Irish Sea coast. By the turn of the 20th century, the lines from Liverpool, Preston and Manchester all terminated at the station after several others across the town were amalgamated into one. At its largest, the station had eleven regular platforms and two excursion platforms and, though the Preston line closed in the 1960s and there are now six platforms, the station still welcomes over three million visitors every year. Just a ten-minute walk from Southport station is the end of the pier with its incredible views along the beaches and dunes of the Sefton coastline. And right outside the station, there's plenty to do, too. Chapel Street is in the heart of one of the town's main shopping areas with wide, tree-lined boulevards and arcades to explore.

Station details & facilities

The main entrance to the station is through a parade of shops from the pedestrianised Chapel Street. All platforms can be accessed step-free from the concourse. The car park right next to the station is for taxis and staff only, but there is an NCP car park further along London Street. Storage space for 162 bikes is available in the staff car park.
