Family Fun Days Out at Southport Pleasureland
A theme park located in Southport, Merseyside, England.
Southport Pleasureland is a family orientated theme park located next to the golden beaches of this wonderful seaside town providing days out in the North West. Since 2007 the theme park has been in the hands of Norman Wallis who has invested heavily to take it from a virtually derelict site to an extremely popular family fun day out. The park has a wide variety of rides for all ages, a family arcade, indoor and outdoor performance areas, stalls plus many food and drink outlets.
One of the best traditional UK theme parks, Pleasureland also benefits from a Go Kart track and parking for caravans and RVs, many of whom come to the park for rallys.
More recently Southport Pleasureland has added the Lakeside Miniature Railway to its list of attractions and work is currently being undertaken to improve the track and surrounding areas of the railway and to bring it back to its former glory and to provide even more fun on your family fun days out.
The history of Southport Pleasureland goes back to the latter part of the 19th century when a number of rides and attractions were first installed on the current Pleasureland site. Indeed, Norman Wallis’s forebears were among the first to have their rides within the Southport park, some of which were incorporated into the Marine Lake, the southern section of which was constructed in 1887.
If you are looking for some family fun days out this year and some wonderful days out in North West England then Southport Pleasureland ticks all the boxes.
