Stay #SunSafe during the hot weather in Sefton

Thousands of people are expected to visit beautiful Sefton this coming weekend (June 28-30) with temperatures set to soar.

Sefton also plays host to two major events this weekend, with the Southport Half Marathon and Armed Forces Day parades taking place on Sunday (June 30), meaning that roads will be especially busy.

We’ve put together a list of helpful tips to make the most out of the borough.


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.


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.


Southport Beach Car Park will be closed to the public during the morning of June 30 to help facilitate the Southport Half Marathon.

We hope to have the beach reopen for public parking from 1pm. Click here to find out more.

Please note that BBQs and drones are banned on our coastline for safety reasons.

Our beaches are characterised in places by sand flats and mud flats, with large tidal ranges. While enjoying Sefton’s beaches, do not get stuck on them.


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.
