A full day at leisure today in the seaside resort of Southport.
Boasting a beautiful and expansive coastline, Southport is surrounded by natural beauty.
Highlights include Southport Pier - Britain's oldest surviving iron pier and the second longest, Kings Gardens - a hive of activity all year round, or Model Railway Village - watch your favourite locomotive as it meanders around the 1.5 acres of beautiful miniature landscape.
Explore Lord Street with its wrought iron canopies, where high street chains mingle with designer boutiques.
We return home in the late afternoon.
