Southport Pier and pavilion cafe, Southport

4.0
A landmark of the town, Southport Pier and pavilion cafe is the oldest iron pier and second longest in the United Kingdom. Stretch your legs with a bracing walk down the pier’s full length and breathe in the sea air. Alternatively, hop on board the unique pier tram to the pavilion at the end. The pier’s pavilion features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the beach. Here you can get refreshments at the cafe and learn about the area’s history through a small exhibition. Play the penny slot machines for a traditional English seaside experience. They operate on pre-decimalization pennies, which are available to purchase on site.

  • Had a leisurely walk to the end of the pier 🥵🥵 WOW!!! Was it warm!!!! Enjoyed an ice cream and a brew, before jumping on the train for the return journey. Thoroughly enjoyed it, in the lovely hot weather and can't wait to do it again! (We must be mad!!! 😂)
  • Best to go later in the day when you're not going to be inundated with people. My favourite time is just as it's closing, and the sun is setting. What a pity they won't allow you to stay longer.
