Sotuhport was founded when Hotel Southport was established at the south end of Lord Street way back in 1792 and it was historically part of Lancashire.

One of the most sought after perks of a trip to Southport is walk through the popular Hesketh Park. This gorgeous amenity is a public park situated near the north end of Lord Street in the Victorian seaside town. Rich in history itself, the land Hesketh Park occupies was once sand dunes and beach. As the tides receded and the town of Southport grew, the need for a park was proposed. At that time; the land was possessed by Reverent Charles Hesketh.
He generously donated the land for use as a public park. Hesketh Parkwas originally designed as a public park in the mid-19th century by Edward Kemp, and was further developed in the 20th century. The land has many Victorian features and landscape designs and is a breathtaking addition to the sand dunes and otherwise seaside atmosphere in Southport.
