Car Hire Southport
The sprawling seaside town of Southport lies on the Irish Sea coast of North West England, to the south of the Ribble estuary. Hire a car in Liverpool, and you're about 27km south of Southport. Preston is 24km north-east of Southport.
Attractions include Southport Pier with its Southport Pier Tramway, the second longest seaside pleasure pier in the British Isles and Lord Street, a graceful, leafy thoroughfare lined with shops,which was once the home of Napoleon III of France. The main reason visitors flock to Southport, however, is the seaside. Sand dunes extend several miles between Birkdale and Woodvale to the south of the town, with the Ainsdale sand dunes classified as a National Nature Reserve in England and a Ramsar site.
