We walked the pier on a nice day and glad we did. Its worth the walk out and the old style slot-machines (old 1p ones) and pin-ball games are SO retro. And you can have a coffee as well at the end of the pier....More

The Pier is well worth a visit while in Southport. Not sure how long it is but looking along it, it appears to disappear into the distance. There’s a miniature railway runs it’s entire length so it’s accessible to everyone.

I believe it does but it depends on the weather. So I can't confirm yes or no on the day you go.
