What a treat, went to Southport with the family and decided to give this a try and it was so quaint and interesting. Such a lovely little place and something you can tick off your bucket list.

Brian gave us a great tour of this museum. The film from the 1940s was interesting. IF you are near Southport I would definitely recommend going to this attraction.
