April Bank Holiday: All You Need To Know this weekend

Thousands of people are expected to visit beautiful Sefton this Bank Holiday weekend (April 19-22) and we’ve put together a list of helpful tips to make the most out of the borough.

Transport

People are strongly advised to plan their journeys as roads are expected to be much busier than normal and we are urging as many people as possible to consider using the wealth of fantastic public transport options

If you are driving through #MySefton, make sure you plan ahead and allow extra time for your journeys and some queues can be expected.

Formby Bypass

The Councils traffic signals contractor has identified an issue with a detection equipment at the junction of the A565 (Formby bypass) and Altcar Road which is currently contributing to delays.

While the contractor is working as quickly as possible to resolve this issue, some delays may be expected during the busy Easter Bank Holiday period and motorists are advised to plan ahead any journeys via this stretch of road.

Shopping

A visit to Sefton is not complete without sampling the shopping and restaurant delights of the borough.

After taking in the fantastic sights each day, why not explore the fantastic array of shops, restaurants and bars which Sefton has to offer?

From the quaint and quirky offerings of Wesley Street and Lord Street in Southport to the hustle and bustle of South Road, Sefton has it all.

The borough’s nightime scene comes alive after 6pm with an array of wine bars, bespoke beer shops and clubs, while Sefton is also renowned for its tasty restaurants and thirst quenching bars.

Beaches

Unfortunately due to high tides there are some beach car parking closures in place. Click here to find out more.

Rubbish

Sefton is home to many beautiful and picturesque spots and we want to keep it that way. We actively encourage both visitors and residents alike to make sure they are responsible for their own rubbish and dispose of it in a sensible manner.

If you cannot find a bin to dispose of your rubbish responsibly, please take it home with you.
