Just a few minutes out of the Southport centre in Churchtown is Southport’s Botanic Gardens.
Originally opened in 1874, these Victorian gardens are bursting with floral splendour and colourful displays.
Winding through the park is the garden’s lake and a multitude of pathways. Don’t miss the Victorian Fernery, open year round, it houses a wonderful display of ferns of all shapes and sizes.
There is an aviary, gift shop and café too, so there’s plenty to see and explore.
